The Silence is Deafening

A loyal reader emailed this message to me today:
When a Channel 6 staffer left for a better job in a larger market, PRK predicted it was because of 6's impending collapse.

But when the Rappin' Weatherman quit KBTV-4 -- silence.

KFDM Loses Another One - Ashley Rodrigue is gone gone gone. It seems (according to our sources) Ashley is going to Baton Rouge (LSU Baby!) and will take a reporters job. More money - bigger market for a talented young lady. They are really bailing now.
Philip also wrote on April 16, 2010:
KFDM - Keep your ears open next week. Here come the changes. Watch for a mass exodus.
Philip also wrote on July 20, 2010
Reporter and morning Anchor Jessica Holloway has left KFDM for greener pastures according to two sources over at KFDM. She leaves as the company and the newsroom continues to struggle with cut back budgets and being pounded by the other two stations in the gathering of news.
From The SF Weekly:
'Rapping Weatherman' Nick Kosir Hired By KRON -- But He Won't Be Rapping

KRON general manager Brian Greif confirmed to SF Weekly that he has, indeed, hired Nick Kosir, the "Rapping Weatherman." But Kosir will have to find a new nickname -- and won't likely be telling viewers "It's time to rhyme" -- as he will not be rapping on KRON.

"He's been hired. He isn't going to be rapping," says Greif. "What works in his current market may not work in San Francisco. Weather is very serious to us."

Nice catch from a longtime reader. Thanks!

Let's not forget that the rapping weatherman will be taking his wife with him. She also is a reporter at Channel 4. They lost two in one day. Is that considered a mass exodus?

Hopefully they will take PRK to San Franciso with them, he should fit in well with the other freaks.

Don't think so...Channel 4 is already paying him what's he's worth.

PRESS RELEASE
==============================

Philip R. Klein has announced the formation of a new political action committee in Jefferson County, National Unity for Teaparty Sympathizers (NUTS).

A rally will be held on the steps of the Jefferson County Courthouse at 12:00 Noon Saturday, where Klein will burn a dictionary in protest of post-secondary education.

"Any education past the eighth grade is just liberal crap," stated Mr. Klein. "Two many of our young people with minds full of mush are being taught to think for themselves. I can barley read or write and it hasn't effected me one dam bit."

Local news celebrity Mike McNeil will serve as MC of the event. The public is cordially invited.
