Recommended Posts

Many around the Southern Tier are CELEBRATING tonight, after it has been CONFIRMED... Candace Chapman has been DEMOTED from her position as NEWS DIRECTOR at WBNG. WBNG is in the process of hiring a new News Director: http://www.careersatquincy.com/story/31094011/news-director-wbng

 

We here at BCVoice feel WBNG needs a talented new News Director like Suh Neubauer at WICZ!

Given her age, are you sure she is not simply retiring? Has any official announcement been made of her new title, position or responsibilities if she is still remaining with the station?

 

If it means getting her off the air, I say good riddance. If you look in the dictionary under the term "chewing the scenery", you'd find her picture. There is no reason for overacting - or acting at all - when reporting a story.

 

I wonder if she inserts instructions in her TelePrompter like "look serious", "look concerned", "raise eyebrows", "pout", etc.

She is far from the Social Security retirement age.

She is far from the Social Security retirement age.

 

She is? Man - reminds me of the old line that Minnie Pearl used to say:

 

"A young man just paid me the nicest compliment. He said I looked like the first breath of spring.

 

"Well - those weren't his exact words. What he said was that I looked like the end of a long, hard winter."

Late 40s.

Late 40s.

 

Holy cow. I thought she had been around a lot longer than that, and she sure definitely looks older than she is.

 

I just checked LinkedIn to see if she had a listing ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/candace-chapman-9ba63b14 ) in addition to her WBNG bio which I only now just looked at ( http://www.wbng.com/about/personalities/100877144.html ). She came to WBNG in 1994, and started at an Oklahoma station in 1991. That means she's been in the industry for 25 years.

I watched Candace Chapman every evening at 6:00 o'clock and thought she was excellent in reporting the news in the Broome County area. Very professional and knowledgeable. Enjoyable to watch and listen to.

Who gives a rats ass if she retired or got the sack? You definitely can tell this is a small town when the BC Voice is turned into a gossip column. With her talent maybe she's just moving on to a warmer more friendly climate? Just saying.

Give the woman a break...I think she did good with what she had to work with..... working for a local station that doesn't report on local news...

I could never figure out why she didn't leave town a few decades ago.

 

Binghamton is where TV anchors stay to die. What happened that she didn't get a better job offer from a larger market a long time ago?
