  1. Longtime newsman LANE MICHAELSEN didn’t take too long to ‘see what’s out there.’

    Michaelsen
    He was named this morning as ND for Scripps’ WCPO-TV in Cincinnati, the ABC affiliate there. Lane just left NBC’s WTVJ-TV in Miami last month, saying he was going to explore other options. His decision came two days after a new GM was named. Lane’s also been an ND in Washington, DC, Tampa, and Little Rock, served as VP/News for Ganettt, and spent some time at Poynter. He began his career as a photographer and spent eight years as Director of Photography at KARE-TV in Minneapolis. The move reunites Lane with WCPO GM STEVE THAXTON: they worked together at KARE when Steve was the VP of Promotion and Production there and again when Lane was at Gannett corporate and Steve was GM at the company’s station in Portland, ME/

    At WCPO, he replaces longtime ND BOB MORFORD who announced his retirement from the station in January. Bob turns 55 next month and qualified for retirement with Scripps. He plans to take some time off and then explore his next opportunity.

    In last week’s report, we told you about a posting for an ND opening at KSNV-TV in Las Vegas, but admitted we didn’t know if longtime ND BOB STOLDAL was leaving the station or concentrating on his corporate responsibilities.

  2. Mike Guerrero on

    They named a news director at NBC6. They put Migdalia Figuroa, the news director of Telemundo in Lane’s place. This was obviously a move to save money. This is another terrible chouce fro NBC. Now that Mike Rodriguez is the General manager, they are promoting Spanish or Cubans to run the place. Migdalia is known for being a liar, having sex with Telemundo photographers and editors and scamming free clothes and free trips throughout her career at Telemundo. She has always hated NBC6, saying it is the worst station and how it’s run by gringos. Good job NBC. You promotied another person who is a bigot and prejudice and this will definitely kill NBC forever.

  3. Whoever wrote that last piece isn’t very well informed. Mike rodriguez was the GM at Telemundo years ago. Manuel Martinez is the recent GM and now the GM at NBC. With mistakes like that, it is hard to believe anything else said about lying, scamming and sexxing.

  4. MikeKnowsHerWell on

    Mike Guerrero may be mistaken about Mike Rodriguez being the GM but he describes Migdalia perfectly. If you’ve worked with her you know this to be true.

    No class. no people skills. this will all show on air quickly. RIP TVJ

    This choice is laughable. How embarrassing. Does she even speak english…NO.

  5. I DON’T REMEMBER MIGDALIA BEING LIKE MIKE DESCRIBES BUT HES VERY ACCURATE ABOUT THE HISPANIC STATEMENT. THERE ARE VERY VERY FEW “GRINGOS” WORKING AT THAT TV STATION AND NONE ON THE ASSIGNMENT DESK. I SAID NONE! THE HISTORY CHANNEL AS AFFECTIONATELY REFERRED TO IN THE FIELD CONTINUES TO PLUMMET FURTHER INTO THE DARK ABYSS. THE STATION IS LIKE AN ISLAND UNTO ITS SELF. THEY MAKE THEIR OWN RULES AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT … LEAVE. ONE DAY ALL OF THOSE BIGGOTS WILL BE OUT OF A JOB AND THEY WILL HAVE NO WHERE TO TURN BECAUSE THEY WILL HAVE BURNED ALL OF THEIR BRIDGES.
