Re: Kylie Miller leaving WNEM

Her sports anchoring career still lasted longer than Mike Terry's.

Re: Mike Terry's gone

Creative Services was outsourced to Phoenix. They are handling half of Meredith's creative team. No lazy individuals were selected. They couldn't find for anything to do after Karen got bounced.

Re: TV5 On Air Talent

That is true. Morale is even lower. Ashlyn was let go, and there is talk of even more reductions. The paychecks are lower, and employees are working 4 days a week with that unpaid furlough day. There is no direction, and Custer is just doing stories on his friends.

Re: Budget axe falls at TV5

Scot Johnson is still collecting a paycheck and doing even less than he did before. Jason Fielder is now taking reporter responsibilities. WNEM has no new advertising. Those moment of calm segments could at least find a sponsor. I'm surprised they aren't doing a wall to wall Corner Store on the week...

Re: Layoffs

Any truth to Scot Johnson and Jason Fielder getting the pink slips?

Re: Laziness

This isn't a topic about WNEM Creative Services? Is it true that WNEM can't sell advertising? Those weather promos are on ad nauseam, and 4 minutes doesn't matter when there's snow. Nice shot of getting that Linden school in that snow promo.

Re: Boyd

Veronica Gabriel wasn't told of Meredith bringing in Boyd. The intention was that this would be an attempt for her to elevate her career, but it appears now she will be the new Alana as the second banana and lost in the shuffle.

Re: Worst gimmicks ever used

The Surprise Squad where they spent quite some time finding the most homely people, so they could give them gift certificates.

Re: Battle of the Christmas concerts

WNEM doesn't have anything in their budget for a Christmas concert or Mike Terry's Christmas Lights special. There will be a Holiday Log special though.

WNEM has given up on 5 Plus. It's going to be mainly Corner Stone Infomercials and their hour news.

Re: Another TV5 departure

She was given the worst schedule out of everyone. Even when they tried to make her look bad, she was the consummate professional. There will be a new CMU graduate replacing her shortly.

Re: Sarah Simnitch let go

Scot Johnson. Maybe God knows that TV5 is a sinking ship and is sending us a message that the time to get out is now. Sarah, Collette, assist. News director Phil Hendricks... all departed after the arrival of Julie-Karin. They're pushing out people not because they were bad employees... they just we...
