Street Talk at CBS4

No suprise here that Jennifer Street has been elevated to the post of news director at Boston's Viacom TV duopoly. Here's a piece of the release:

November 29, 2005: Jennifer Street has been named News Director for Boston's CBS4 and UPN 38, it was announced today by the stations' President and General Manager, Julio Marenghi. Street, who has been serving as acting News Director for five months, was most recently Assistant News Director. Her promotion is effective immediately.

"We're delighted that Jennifer will take over CBS4 News and lead the department's development," said Marenghi. "Jennifer is one of the most highly-regarded and distinguished journalists in New England with a track record for being the best. She has the respect and trust of the news staff as well as senior management, and we are confident that her leadership will be key to CBS4 News' success."


What should make Street's tenure infinitely more interesting is the widespread belief that Channel 4 -- lagging badly in third place in Boston's news ratings wars -- is planning on shaking up its on-air lineup sometime soon. In an interview with the Phoenix earlier this year, Marenghi summed up the station's philosophy thusly: "We want to try anything."
