(FTVLive) Check out this job posting by Nexstar for KMID (Midland, Texas) that was posted on the Texas Association of Broadcasters website.
Notice the location of the job:
I don’t know of any cities in Texas called “White (non-Hispanic)” and if that is the kind of person you are looking for, I think the EEOC might want to have a conversation with you.
A few hours after FTVLive posted this story, we got this email from KMID GM Mike Lee:
Now, FTVLive clearly stated in our original post that the KMID job posting was a screenshot from the Texas Association of Broadcasters website. Before we were able to contact Mr. Lee, he obviously figured out who the “source” on the story was (as it was posted in our first line of the story). Mr. Lee emailed us again saying this:
We have no clue if the error was made by the Texas Association of Broadcasters or by KMID in the submitting process. FTVLive will take Mr. Lee at his word and put the blame on the Texas Association of Broadcasters.
We can only bet that if the City of Midland put up a job posting that basically said “Whites only” we are guessing that KMID would do a story on it. When we went to the Texas Association of Broadcasters website at 2AM this morning and saw this job posting, we took a screenshot and reported the story.
We are happy to know that this was an error and that Nexstar is “clearly an equal opportunity employer” and are more than happy to update the story and thank Mr. Lee for reaching out to us.
