...The overall toxic environment overseen by the News Director is nothing short of despicable. I cannot imagine any other station exists where passive aggressive emails, unrealistic expectations with little time to execute, non existent communication etc. Are allowed to happen for as long as it has with this current news director...
...If you would like to work at WILX there is only one thing to check. Is Barb Roethler the news director. If yes, do not take it."
...Barb does have good enough news judgement and doesnt get in the way on stories. But good lord, she's a mean person deep down. The turnover at WILX the last 8 months or so was INSANE even by tv standards. An anchor and met let go just because Barb felt like it."
...Barb was the worst person I have ever worked for. She promised many of us young reporters that we'd get our chance to anchor, do some sport reporting, whatever we wanted, etc.. None of that happened, she lies to bring you in, but once you are in, you'll soon realize it was all lies, it is a shit show."
