Here's a interesting story involving WTSP GM Elliot Wiser.
Wiser put out a memo to the staff saying the station had hired two new people in the Sports Department. Many found it odd that the memo on a couple of sports hires came from the GM and not someone in news management.
Three different people tell FTVLive that outgoing Sports Anchor Chris Fischer was the one that informed WTSP News Director Bob Clinkingbeard of the new hires. Word is that Executive Producer Melissa Rancourt also did not know about the hires made by Wiser.
So, the GM announces the new hires and the ND and EP didn't even know they were hired?
Clinkingbeard, who has been dealing with some health issues told the staff that he is returning to the station full time in the Fall. He told staffers things will be changing when he returns.
Many hope that means Wiser will be spending less time micro managing the newsroom. FTVLive spies say Wiser spends a lot of time in the newsroom (see pictures) playing seagull.
He flies around the place and drops shit everywhere.
