Buffalo Business First ends relationship with TV station
Buffalo Business First and a television station in the New York city are ending their 15-year relationship, which means that business reporter Elizabeth Carey will be off the air by the end of the month, reports Alan Pergament of the Buffalo News.
Pergament writes, “Business First president and publisher Jack Connors said the decision to end the relationship was based on newsroom needs. Carey was paid by Business First for her Channel 7 appearances, which were designed to promote the business newspaper.
“‘We didn’t see it as a priority any longer,’ said Connors. ‘I felt bad. Elizabeth is a great person and did a great job. We’re just going in a different direction.’
“The publisher added that the chain of business journals that owns Business First has been eliminating the television reporters at most of its newspapers for a number of years.”
