News operation

Employees at NBC Local News station in New City claim theyre being treated like second-class citizens when it comes to companies ' coronavirus testing policies, Post has learn. Employees of WNBC, NBC Local affiliate in New York, are demanding they receive COVID-19 tests like their colleagues at NBC News, MSNBC and even Saturday Night Live, who are being tested at least once week, sources close to situation say. Anger hit fever-pitch in late September, when New York Times profile came out on SNL creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels, who said he and his staff are getting rapid 15-minute COVID tests every time they set foot in 30 Rockefeller Center, where late-Night comedy show is base, along with NBCs News operations. We understand Lorne Michaels is Lorne insiders say. On other hand. When pandemic was at its worst, we still came to work in field and in office and continue to do so. You would think that management would show some of compassion and some wisdom. Trouble started brewing even before SNL interview, with WNBC stagehands griping in early September that they were receiving same coronavirus testing as their counterparts at NBC cable news divisions, despite sharing one of their floors with MSNBC, including Studio of NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, staffers say. It quickly emerged that many other WNBC staffers, from anchors and producers to field photographers, were also not being despite going to work every day at 30 Rock. NBC in August ordered majority of its local news staffers, about 100 people, to return to office if they were already coming in, sources say. WNBC personalities include Chuck Scarborough, who anchors 4 New York at 6 pm every weeknight, and anchor Bruce Beck, who hosts NBC 4s Sunday Night Sports show Sports Final. Since returning to work, WNBC staffers say they have benefited from some policies aimed at protecting them from deadly disease, including mandatory temperature checks at entrance of 30 Rock. Once temperature is take, staffers receive color-cod and date wristband with barcode that allow them to get free boxed meal. But many of their NBC colleagues, including cable News folks, also receive weekly sign-ups for mandatory COVID tests on mezzanine floor of building or at nurses office on 9 floor, sources say. Great, free food but they wo give us test, one local news staffer sniffed. Second source grip: You have people sharing same doors, same entryways, same elevators. In some cases, you might have stagehand who has been tested working near teleprompter operator who has not been test. Upset Local News staffers lodged complaints to their bosses during virtual town hall last month, but management stonewalled them in face of questioning, according to source. All management could say was: we are monitoring what network is doing, source say.

Personalities

Don Imus, whose stock in trade in Morning has been offcolor remark that his devoted listeners regard as outrageous, has lost his berth on WNBC Radio after six years. Leaving with him, in clean sweep of station's disk jockeys, will be Joe McCoy, Walt Baby Love, Cousin Brucie Morrow, Dick Summer, Bill Rock and Steve Warren. On Sept. 1, flagship station of NBC Radio will introduce entirely NEW cast and NEW music policy, admittedly resembling that of WABC Radio, top station in NEW Yorka policy of Rock recordings appealing to young listener. Symbolic of how drastic change will be is fact that voice taking place of Imus in Morning will be that of diminutive 11old-woman, Ellie Dyland, who retains trace of Georgia accent. She will be only morning man on AM Radio in entire country who's woman, claim Risa Weinrib, spokesman for station. Miss Dylan recruited from Chicago. Her NEW 11air colleagues are also being import: Johnny Dark from Boston, Lee Masters from Louisville, Ky., Alan Beebe from San Diego, Bat Johnson from Kansas City, Reed from Miami and Jay Stone from Pittsburgh. All are in their 20's. But real star of stationif it should succeed in moving up from 17 place in market to leading positionis likely to be program manager, Bob Pittman. At age of 23, he already has eight years of Radio experience with seven stations around country. Mr. Pittman and his boss, Charles Warner, vice president and General manager of WNBCAM, were brought to NEW YORK in June by NBC from company's Chicago station, WMAQ, where they had distinguished themselves in relatively brief period. Taking bold step of converting that powerful 50 000watt urban station to countrymusic formal, they impressed entire Radio industry when station rose from 15 place to third in Chicago market. Mr. Warner gives much of credit to Mr. Pittman, who first worked for him AT Pittsburgh station while Mr. Pittman was still in his teens. He's just brilliant, Warner say. Kid is analytical totally research-orient. Unlike other program managers, he's very objective in his of research and doesn't let his own tastes or desires interfere with his judgment. Mr. Pittman has always been too busy with Radio to college, although he has taken occasional courses. He started in Radio AT age of 15, as disk jockey in his home town of Brookhaven, Miss., And quickly advanced to managerial side. He has designed much of audience research that he employs in his work. It was his to give Miss Dylan from 6 A. M. To 10. M. Shift on WNBC, critical diskjockey slot because it is time when Radio listening is highest for day. It takes guts to do something that, because it breaks with Radio traditions, Mr. Warner say.
