WFLD-Channel 32 brings back Debbie Carpenter as sales chief

| 1 Comment

Debbie Carpenter is returning to Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32 and sibling station WPWR-Channel 50 as vice president and general sales manager, effective immediately. She will be responsible for all sales initiatives for the two stations and report to Michael Renda, general manager for the two stations.

Previously, Carpenter served as vice-president and general manager for both of the Fox-owned stations in Chicago from 2004 to 2006. Carpenter also served as vice-president and general sales manager of WFLD from 1994 to 2000. Renda said of Carpenter: "Her deep understanding of the market, combined with her proved record and entrepreneurial spirit, made her the ideal choice to lead our sales team."

What a stupid move (again). This woman is a loose cannon and buyers will do anything in their power to NOT buy the station. She belongs some place where she neveer has to interact with another human being. I suppose animals hate her, too. She is obnoxious, confrontational, unyielding and paranoid. What's the matter with Fox? DO they not have anyone in their management pool who is respected? She needs to move to an island with no humans. Terrible, terrible woman.
