Many that work in TV news are looking to get out of the business. The odd hours, low pay and the lack of doing actual Journalism have many looking to leave and find a more stable and better paying job.
If you work for Tegna in Seattle it seems that many are finding that next career move at Boeing.
Over the past decade or so nine people moved from Tegna’s KING-TV to Boeing.
After 22 years at the station, Reporter Elisa Hahn signed off last week and heads to Boeing as the 9th KING staffer to do so.
Here are the others that made the jump. :
Bernard Choi, Corporate. Ex-reporter
Wilson Chow, Comm director. Ex NWCN reporter
Mark Erskine ex EP evening magazine
Doug Alder ex King news ep
Deb Feldman. Ex reporter, ex Reporter/writer
Shaniqua Manning. Ex King-NWCN anchor
Ed Muir. Ex NWCN met
Adam Tischler, Ex King photog.
If the Tegna staff is not headed to Boeing, their next choice is the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Here are the people that made that move:
Laura Newborn ex King Asst ND
Bart Treece ex King consumer producer
Lisa Mathieson. Ex King/NWCN met
Ally Barrera ex NWCN producer
Kris Olsen ex NWCN manager ( longtime employee at WSDOT)
Harmony Haveman ex King-NWCN producer.
