Yesterday FTVLive told you that WHIO in Dayton has seen morale drop as The Dayton Daily News newspaper has taken over running the TV station.
Right on cue, this email was sent out to the staff yesterday about a new hire.
Join me in welcoming Brian Bondus to Springfield today.
Brian will be our newest AMJ, or all-media journalist. He will cover Champaign and Logan counties, helping WHIO with ratings points. Recent research said we could gain market share with some more work there.
As he works to pick up Champaign County, Matt Sanctis will continue to transition to the jobs and economy beat that he has been helping with lately, making that his key focus.
Brian is a graduate of the University of Missouri who has lived in the Indianapolis area.
He will begin here in training that will focus on the print side first before we get him set up for the TV side, which is where most of his experience has been.
