U.S. Rep Weiner tours newsrooms


U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) toured the newsrooms of four New York radio stations Friday in connection with his inquiry into long-stalled contract negotiations between the WGA East and two broadcast networks. For more than two years, the guild has had 500 TV and radio newswriters and others working under terms of an expired contract with CBS in four markets, and some 250 of its news professionals are working under an expired pact with ABC in two markets. The WGAE has been lobbying elected officials in the various markets to help apply pressure on the networks in working through various pay and workplace issues.
