Sources tell FTVLive that one Fox O&O News Director made an awfully embarrassing mistake recently.
The ND was trying to suck up to his bosses and wrote and email to them saying that he could save his station money by eliminating the Assistant News Director and Managing Editor positions at the station. He said they could get by with just him and the Executive Producers.
It seems the bosses have not been very impressed with the News Director and the ND was looking to do something that might make the suits happy.
The problem was, when the ND went to send the email, he sent a copy to the Assistant News Director and the M.E.
Needless to say, it has been more than a bit awkward in the newsroom lately. Word is that Fox signed the Deuce to a new contract just to show him that he was part of the station's future.
The same might not be said for the ND, who we hear also signed a new agreement, but for only a year.
