This is a holiday. Pretty normal.

I can only imagine the raging emails 9 & 10 received from dateless wonders from mom's basement regarding their decision.

Well, if that is all that grinds your gears about news or news station, then there is a serious problem.

Certain stations in Detroit cancelled newscasts at Noon, 4PM and even 5PM on Memorial Day. It's a holiday. Unofficial start of summer. Most people don't care to watch news, and some stations sure as hell aren't going to pay time-and-a-half to staff dayparts where viewership is going to be piss poor.

A news/talk radio station where I worked would have live casts on, holiday mornings till 10 a.m., ran a rotation of canned reports through noon, then loaded the 5-minute network casts into the automation from 12 p.m. on.

The same station now has no local news content on Sundays.

Things change, or apparently, have changed.
