I worked with a news anchor who battled an alcohol addiction. It's not just about someone having too much fun and getting carried away, there sometimes are much deeper issues we don't know about. My c

When you think things couldn't get worse for Ted, well.. (from WISN radio host Dan O'Donnell)

 

 

If he loses his job, there's a pipeline to WDJT from WITI via their new GM... put money on it.

I have thoughts about what Dan O'Donnell and the rest of the WISN lineup can do... I'll let you use your imagination as to what. IMO, they're all repugnant.

Considering those folks at WISN killed any effort by my county to reduce COVID-19 through inane 'but muh freedoms' protests against the county government (a county that isn't even covered in their news unless their 'outrage of the week' occurs here), it's no wonder WISN-TV long ago burned all bridges with them.

Interesting read about the toxic workplace at KUSI.

From reading the comments and post, not only is john soderman gone after over 20 years there but Steve Bosh and Sasha Foo are also out after many years there. Only old timers left at KUSI seem to be Weatherman Dave Scott, Longtime Sports Anchor and Current Morning Co-Anchor Paul Rudy, Reporter Ed Lenderman and Anchor/Reporter Dan Plante. Gotta Wonder how much longer for them at KUSI

Sandra leaving was the ice breaker and John speaking out opened a lot of eyes along with multiple shots fired.

 

it’s been a while since I checked on my hometown market. It’s sad in the direction KUSI is going. A few weeks ago they had Mark Mathis clowning about the governors restrictions calling him King Newsom. 
 

I understand most of the staff at KUSI is old and trying to be the “cool parent” in the mornings but that was beyond out of bounds.

KUSI is like a mom-and-pop local version of Fox News to a degree. It's more Fox News than Fox 5. Remember, this is the station that let John Coleman go off about global warming. They clearly have a slant. Then again, that is their audience.

Yep. Their owner is a conservative so that makes sense...

Jim Kambrich is retiring after 41 years in broadcasting, the last 26 years at WNYT; December 4 will be his last day at the station. His wife started a new job in NYC in July and has been going back and forth between there and the Albany area since, so they will be moving to NYC full-time.

 

Here's the video of his announcement via WNYT's Facebook page.

Here's a promo for when he was the 11pm anchor at WAKC, which was then Akron's ABC affiliate alongside WEWS in Cleveland.

A lot of people either worked early or started their careers there.  Paxson shut down the news department in 1996 and dropped ABC the following year.

The other victim was the boyfriend of a different Ft. Myers reporter. Both victims were wearing helmets per a newspaper article. Unfortunately, the helmet is just a little piece of plastic between you and a sturdy object at high speed.

Ted Perry is back on WITI as of the Packers halftime report tonight, so the corporate-induced suspension is over for him; no return to socials yet (not linking to his Twitter, but Dan O'Donnell is...bitter he didn't win a firing).

Big news out of Steel City.....

 

Thought i would Start this. BUT, I wonder if this was a force out like we have seen with KDKA-TV, Meredith, TEGNA and others. I know Rob Owen of the Tribune Review plans to ask this also but I would bring it up here as well for people here to Discuss. I'm so happy for Peggy and I hope she takes some time off and continues to keep that Pittsburgh Charm she has.

According to the Trib, the decision was entirely hers...

Well, she was being quietly pushed out in the evenings with Lisa Sylvester. And demoted to noon so I guess it was a sign but if it was hers that understandable too...
