Our Rundown

Comings and Goings

The Auburn Citizen has new publisher, and several behind-the-scenes people in local TV change jobs.

On Monday, Cayuga Media, which publishes The Citizen in Auburn and auburnpub.com announced that publisher Mike Rifanburg has let his position, and will be replaced by former publisher Rick Emanuel. Emanuel left the paper for years ago to run the company's Post-Star in Glens Falls. Owner Lee Enterprises says Emanuel will oversee both publications while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement.

Amanda Seef, a member of the Press Club Board of Directors and an assignment editor at YNN is leaving journalism for a position as an EMT with Rural Metro.  So instead of assigning reporters and photographers to cover accidents and shootings, Amanda will be responding to help the injured. Good luck Amanda from all of us at the Syracuse press Club.

Ginger Whitaker is also leaving YNN.  Whitaker is a web producer, and has taken a position with WAVY TV in Roanoke, Virginia. Prior to joining YNN, Whitaker worked as the producer for Today in Central New York at WSTM.

Andrea Nejman, producer of the 11 @ Eleven late news on Newschannel 9 has left the station for a producing gig at Newschannel 8, the cable news operation  of WJLA TV in Washington, DC. Nejman joined Newschannel 9 three years ago after graduating from Ithaca College.

WKTV's Lexie O'Connor is returning to her native New England.  According to WKTV and CNYradio.com, O'Connor is moving to Portland. Maine CBS affiliate WGME.  The Boston University grad has been at the station for two years.
