Basically, Scripps-Howard didn't want to pay her, her contract was expiring, no doubt she would have wanted a raise in salary, instead, she was shown the door...

I've modified your message to the crux of the matter in the broadcast industry today.

The talking heads make WAY TOO MUCH $$$$$. Anyone have info on how much she(they)make. You do know they DON"T write their copy, just show up gaze lovingly at each other and regurgitate the words electronically in front of them. The stations should go to 1 talking head, and get rid of weather and sports. Your thoughts?

Scripps is doing worse than the other big boys... it isn’t raining layoffs everywhere... just with those clowns...

The group will be sold in pieces and it’ll finally die, hopefully sooner than later.

This looks like a big mistake for Channel 7!

No more Geritol

Post by In The Bleachers » Mon Mar 12, 2018 5:40 pm

I'm starting to ponder if the game plan at Broadcast House is to have younger people.
I just looked at their website staff bios. Once Purtan leaves, is Clifford is the oldest person in front of the camera?
Just a theory.


Nothing will change until ALL incumbents are voted out of office.

Dave LewAllen is older and then Rexroth then Carolyn... the latter two are very similar in age and Purtan was in the same ball park. It’s cost and not age. I don’t think the folks at Broadcast House are thrilled with how this is going down...

I think compared to her peers at 7 and 2 and 4 for that matter.JoAnn Purtan is more than average.

From all indications JoAnne isn't ready to retire but she may not want to work so hard. So will it be 2 or 4? Even a 62 newscast.

It is hard to keep track of all the new faces on Channel 7. And - - do I even want to? With Joanne Purtan gone I'll be looking for a new station. Hope this comes back to bite them in the a** .

I got to thinking.
Right now, Fox2 rotates people to do the 11am with Margolis.
I could see Purtan be a permanent co-anchor in that timeslot.

Fox 2 went through the same cost cutting layoffs a few years ago when they laid off Murray Feldman, Jason Carr, Lee Thomas and 4 behind the scenes employees. Thomas was hired back as a per diem. Margolis's partner was Murray Feldman and coincidentally he was also 2's financial reporter.

Prediction: she'll wind up at WOMC, joining Stephen Clark.


Memo to 106.7: Twenty-One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, FUN and Fall Out Boy all S-U-C-K!!! Stop playing those shitty (boy) bands, and maybe you'll end your streak of piss poor ratings!
