Why don't you ever seem to see news anchors switch stations? Is it like a "one and done" thing, where other companies don't want to use someone who people will associate with another company? It seems strange to me

If you’re going to move to another station and make more money you’re probably going to move to another market, our new anchors come from different states I don’t think I’ve seen any coming from different stations in the same market. Behind the scenes people will come from competitor stations though for sure. That’s what I assume the reasoning is anyway

This is a good point, you might as well just start over in a different specialty market. I think once a lot of people learn to associate you with a certain market or type of work, that is all they will expect from you, so it can be hard to branch out without making a really noticeable change

Maybe it is because if the presenter is in one company and moves to another, that person is associated with the first and they do not want to take that risk, it is better to invest in someone new who is your image and not someone who can affect you.

One reason is that anchor personnel are often very closely associated with the station they work for and viewers may not appreciate seeing the same person on multiple stations. Also, when they receive other offers, their station will often match them or offer more to keep them.

I think people probably switch stations or networks all the time, but the companies try to hold onto the same anchors because it's like they are the face of the company

Most of the time when people leave a longstanding career, they are really burnt out by the end of it. So I imagine they want a change of pace afterwards, instead of just working on the same old stuff as always, just for a different employer.

Can a newspaper use my photo without my consent?

I'm not a reporter, I'm just a citizen who took a picture during an event and uploaded it to my social media account. Turns out a digital media wrote me to have permission to use my picture, and when I said yes, they said they were looking for some other picture because I had already given permission to the competitors, which I didn't.
They just posted it without asking me, letting me know, or even mentioning my credits. Is this legal?
