When TV People Fly The Coop

Today is Jenn Bosworth’s last day. She is a reporter/anchor at FoxCT. She will now work for a new “golf lifestyle” channel, The Back9 Network, founded by her husband.

It’s always sad to see someone move on. Jenn’s a good person. She and I sit in facing cubicles. She has learned to not hear my loudness. Someone new must now be broken in!

In broadcasting people come and go all-the-time. Upward mobility is the implied promise that makes working in tiny markets for slave wages seem reasonable. It’s still sad.

Sometimes there are going away parties. I never go. I’ve missed hundreds… maybe thousands.

Years ago the general manager of my station in Buffalo forbade going away parties. “They just encourage people to leave,” he said.

    You were the new guy and that’s the view you got from your cubicle!? That’s the TV anchor equivalent of a corner office with an ocean view.

    Sorry Jen is leaving. Didn’t she just get married? Well, whether I like it or not, people go their own way and I have to say, ” Good luck, Jen, and the best of everything!”
