In Buffalo, women are everywhere on local television.
That’s according to a Buffalo News story. The paper is reporting that of the last 23 on-air hires across all three networks in the market, 22 of them have been women.
The paper says journalism professors attribute it to supply and demand. More women are getting journalism degrees so there are more female applicants in the hiring pool.
All three hiring managers in the market told the paper they hire the best person for the job, whether it be male or female.
