Getting Out Before the New Boss Comes In

When KPIX (San Francisco) was looking to fill their open News Director position, many thought that CBS would go with longtime Assistant News Director Lisa White. 

Instead the company picked KSNV (Las Vegas) ND Mark Neerman to come from the Sinclair station to San Francisco. 

A number of people inside the newsroom are not happy with this pick and many were hoping that White was the woman for the job. 

White, acting as the boss, until Neerman gets there, did get to send out a memo last week to the staff. It seems that longtime Managing Editor Peter Saiers is not sticking around for the Neerman reign at the station. 

He gave his notice with no job lined up. 

Here is the internal email that White sent out and was obtained by FTVLive:
