Mark this: Williamson to WNIR?
Williamson had been the news director at Akron's Channel 23, which has since morphed beyond recognition in recent years. He spent 15 years at City Hall as the mayor's spokesman, but it wasn't a well-kept secret that he and the mayor became estranged to a breaking point. He resigned in January.
Perhaps it was Williamson's broken ties with Plusquellic that led to his interest in the opening at WNIR, a station that might best be described as a poor man's Fox News. A very poor man. Or maybe there's simply a lousy job market for guys with his background.
As the newspaper editorialists often say, this bears watching. Particularly by the mayor's office.
