Sources are telling FTVLive that WKBW's ND just walked out the door and across the street. Lisa Polster, the ND at Scripp's newly acquired station, just inked a deal to become the morning EP at Media General's WIVB.
When WKBW GM Mike Nurse heard the news, he told Polster she had to leave the building immediately.
According to sources, this could be a big coup for WIVB. There were reportedly a lot of tears in the Channel 7 newsroom because Polster is well liked.
A big change from the days of Bill Ransom. when there were a lot of 'tears of joy' when he left the building.
