News Director and Salesman

New WCPO News Director Chip Mahaney is settling into his new job "that is like no other in the country."

It seems  that along with being the News Director, Mahaney is also a station sales person. Mahaney used his Twitter account to offer up a holiday deal to join the station's website. 

And GET THIS....join now and you get a $10 Amazon gift card. You also "support LOCAL Journalism."

It's a deal you can pass up....but if you join in the next 10 minutes, Chip will throw in a second set of knives at no cost. 

Just pay the $98 shipping and handling charge. 

Since this is the first time we have ever seen a TV News Director also trying to get viewers to pay for web access, I guess it really is a job like no other.
