Sue Nigra: Curiously Irreplaceable

I don't know what Sue Nigra wanted, but maybe they should have given it to her.Sue Nigra's been gone from WRGB since August, but the station hasn't yet managed to find someone suitable to fill her...uh...seat. In fact, they're still running this ad in the TU's online classifieds:
ANCHOR/REPORTER WRGB/CBS 6 in Albany, NY is looking for an anchor/reporter. Candidate will anchor our noon 5pm newscasts and will also report on a daily basis. The right candidate will have at least five years of experience. We're looking for a top-notch journalist and a great communicator with a desire to be part of the community. Four-year college degree preferred.
The listing is kind of surprising, considering the number of industry sites that post job openings and the power of word of mouth. Maybe they need to lower the bar a bit ---I mean really, now all of the sudden you need a "top-notch journalist"?
