Raycom to Centralize Traffic for all Their Stations

If you work at a Raycom station, you might want to say your goodbyes to the folks in the Traffic Department, they're all leaving.

Raycom announced that it will centralize traffic operations for 51 television stations it owns or operates. The new Raycom Centralized Traffic Operation will be located in Charlotte, N.C.

The company says that all current Raycom Media traffic employees will be offered the opportunity to apply for positions in the new Charlotte operation.

It is expected that many will not make the move or could not afford to do so.

“Raycom television stations have benefitted from some of the best and most loyal traffic professionals in the industry, and we are deeply grateful for their service” said Paul McTear, Raycom president-CEO.

They were so loyal and so good, we are eliminating their jobs.

Isn't TV just grand?
