All Hands On Deck Meeting Called at WPLG


Emily Barr (pictured) the President and CEO Post-Newsweek Television stations is making a trip to Florida and we don't think it's to work on her tan.

Barr is slated to have two meetings at WPLG, one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Everyone at the Post-Newsweek owned station has been told they must attend.

It is interesting, calling an all hands on deck meeting, while you're in the middle of a very important ratings book is definitely a distraction. Speculation is it has to be something big

Here is the internal memo, obtained by FTVLive from WPLG GM David Boylan to the staff:
