Duffy Goes to the Competition

The rumors were trueBeth Duffy left NBC 29 to work for Gray Communications, The Hook writes on their blog. Her non-compete with NBC 29 prevents her from doing any on-air work, so she intends to work in sales.

  • I gotta say, there ain’t no way Duffy’s working in sales for long. The more I think about this, the more I’m just not buying it. They could have any fool working in sales. They’ve got her there until they can find a way out of her non-compete, then they’ll get her on the air faster than you can say “Live at Five.”

    Getting an NBC 29 anchor on the air there is the only way that these new stations have any hope of getting within spitting distance of WVIR.

  • I agree with your assessment of the situation.

    Non-compete clauses are a joke or should be. It’s restraint of trade. If they want her on air they should just go ahead and do it then let Channel 29 “bring it to them.”

    Honestly she probably could make more in sales (if she’s good at it) then she could as an anchor.. but then I don’t really know anyone’s wages and am just speculating.

    Worse case senario they keep her in sales till the term of the non-compete clause expires then give her the plum spot that means she doesn’t have to do early am and get up at some ridiculous hour.

    The more I’m learning about channel 29 the less I’m liking them.. first “morals clauses” and now a non-compete clauses? Tsk tsk.. shame on them.
