    Pros

    Great station atmosphere that is highly competitive in the market. Also one of Tribune's favorite stations because the profits are solid for a shaky industry.

    Cons

    Too much on-air time to fill. This is two stations in one building with more hours than any other stations in the market, by far. The burn out factor is high among reporters.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the good people at the station. Don't develop a high turnover rate because the workload will be overwhelming when good people leave.

    Pros

    Creating content is fun. If you have a passion for news you will love it.
