You can read Kristine Kahanek’s blog post about it here. The short version:
Since the decision was made earlier this week, I am still pinching myself wondering if all that’s happening is real. My co-workers will be surprised by the announcement made today, and it will be difficult to say good-bye to the people at the station whom admire and respect..my work family.
Broadcast television is a tough place right now. Like so many industries, with the economic downturn, revenue in down, and companies are restructuring and downsizing. This all needs to happen, and my position at the station is a casualty of the times.
I haven’t looked at Uncle Barky yet. I’m guessing he had this two weeks ago.
