Some big news I have to share:
At the end of the month I will be leaving CKNW to take on the News Director job at News 1130.
It's an exciting move, but I'm also filled will so much appreciation for my time at CKNW. To work for Terry Schintz is to work for the best in the business. I've learned so much, and am proud to have been a part of this team.
And while I'm ready to tackle this challenge, it also means the end to me reporting in the field. It's a different type of journalism, and that excites me.
I'm looking forward to getting to know the WX crew in the coming months.

Wow... I'll bet that 's not going to sit well with some of the long time senior editors on Ash St. Hiring someone from an operation where the news operation, like its talk shows have been going bland in recent years with the corporate cutbacks. Not a shot against Charmaine, who I don't know anything about, but would sure like to know why Rogers didn't promote from within.
Houston, We're dealing with morons!.

Fleeing a sinking ship?

... given today's 21 layoffs at Global Vancouver?

Isn't she a digital news reporter/"content specialist" from Castanet Media in Kelowna?

Too bad. :(

Cheers,
Doug
