In no rush?

Since WBRE fired news director Paul Stueber last month, there's been no peep from Nexstar about a replacement. Sure, it can take a while to find a good news director, but oddly enough, there's no mention of an opening on either WBRE's or Nexstar's website. Not even talent agent Rick Gevers, who tracks where news directors come and go, has any formal announcement.

Either Nexstar is in no rush to fill Stueber's job, or they're thinking of keeping acting news director Ron Krisulevicz where he is. Time isn't on their side though. If Frank Andrews wins the upcoming primary election for state representative, he'll be out as WYOU's news director. You don't want a duopoly without two permanent news directors.

As for Stueber, he's thinking about moving into local radio as his next career move.

Finding one person to do the jobs of two people is nothing new for Station 5~0. Look at their bureaus...

The story about Stueber possibly going to radio was published in the story about his dismissal. You're a day late and a dollar short on that one Howard.

You did see that I linked to that CV story when I mentioned Stueber's radio plans, right?

Yes I did see that, but the story you linked is over a month old. If you are going to put links to stories up, at least the stories should be timely...and not over a month old.
