Here’s some news — Fox41 is expanding its on-air staff and devoting more resources to business news.
In changes you’ll see on the station after Labor Day, the local Fox affiliate is assigning Bill Francis to a strictly-business beat, moving morning reporter Jennifer Baileys to afternoon general reporting. And the new face you’ll see in the mornings in Lindsay Allen, who escaping the Lima, Ohio market and a Fox41 sister station to do mornings here.
“When stations are laying people off we’re actually hiring people,” said WDRB news director Barry Fulmer. “It’s going to make our news department stronger.”
Allen is an IU grad who started her broadcast career in North Carolina, and is originally from Maryland.
You can check out Allen on the WLIO website — looks like a good move for the station.
