Ryan Slocum GONE!

Post by lovinlife101 » Sat Dec 14, 2019 1:37 pm

Already scrubbed from the website.

What’s the excuse? Spend more time with family? Pursuing other dreams? Selling cars or real estate?

Can’t be because of salary. What was he making? Maybe $55,000 for working there more than 15 years? Guess that’s a career for most.

Surprised J.R. and Angie Ostrichneck are still there. Just a matter of time.

Looks like they have only one person in sports at ABC12.

He’s a Ryan clone, even down to the voice inflection, expect with more hair and less salary.

Ryan is working at the State Champs network.
Wonder what he’s doing with the rest of his time. It’s only a part time gig. Molzon is working part time there too.

I question why local stations have local sports segments.

“Hey, three people showed up to the Flint Firebirds game tonight! One of them was me. Here’s what you missed because you didn’t care to see it...<take vo>...three periods of scoreless hockey action brings us to scoreless overtimes, so we go to a coin toss...and... the Punxsutawney POONTANGS take the victory in fantastic fashion!

“On to professional wrestling that nobody cares about...it’s Nick Nobody taking the championship over Seymour Butts! But wait, the ref way paid off by someone in the crowd wanting the match to end before he died of boredom! It’s a disqualification! These two will lock up again at the Swartz Creek elementary playground rain or shine next week!

“Now to MMA fighting...wait, what...I’m fired? I’m getting a message in my IFB that my services are no longer required because Bill Harris has another relative that needs a job. Guess it’s on to the State Champs! Network for me!!!”

Leave it to LL to interweave a Bill Harris slam into everything.
When you’ve got 50+ years of news experience and nothing to show for it, it makes an easy target.

I find that statement to be totally unbelievable. A whopping bold face lie at best.
The phrase is “bald-faced lie,” but thanks for playing. Or do you need me to be more pacific?

Seriously, is the new guy just cheaper than Ryan?

He looks and delivers nearly identical.

More hair, and more dark hair. That’s the only difference. He also turned sharply on set and his nose nearly put an eye out.

Ryan’s departure had nothing to do with money.
How can you be so sure?

Because I know. And that’s all you need to know.
I could say the same thing and be 100% wrong.

I’m sure you thought Molzon’s exit “had nothing to do with money” and that would be 100% wrong.

Yeppers.

100% wrong.

Slocum, Molzon, Feick, Harris, all about the mun-ay.

This is why you have no credibility.
On the first day of the Disney/SJL transition, JB & BH were relieved of their duties at 12. PV came in and immediately pulled the trigger on them. For money? Or a show of power? Whatever. Clearly a poor decision, as were all his future decisions concerning 12. JF openly criticized PV in front of the entire news dept for firing JB. He was shown the door. Money had nothing to do with that.

GM was sent to one of the most prestigious sports event in the county to do live coverage. He never reported a thing. Why? Because he was called back from his assignment and immediately released. Even someone as ill prepared to be a general manager as PV wouldn't do that because he made too much money. It was for something else.
Since the VP is such a VIP, maybe we should keep his LZ on the QT cause with the leaks in the VC, he could be MIA and we’d all end up on KP.
All I can say is he’d better XYZ PDQ or he’ll be SOL while listing to BBD eating BBQ and BLT’s with NKOTB in his BVDs.

I nearly asked BB if he was down with OPP, but it would be IDK.

Let’s talk evidence.

ABC12 has replaced higher paid workers with lower paid workers.

Just pointing out that you were wrong.
If you’re going to post something, make it
factual.
You mentioned 4 people that were let go from 12 because of mun-ay, as you put it.



Remember this statement?
"I’m sure you thought Molzon’s exit “had nothing to do with money” and that would be 100% wrong.
Would it?
Yeppers.

100% wrong.

Slocum, Molzon, Feick, Harris, all about the mun-ay."



Has 12 replaced higher paid workers with lower paid workers in the past? Certainly.

But not the ones you mentioned above, with the exception of possibly one.

Yeppers!

You were wrong gain.
Nobody who has been hired since Harris and Feick make anywhere near what they made.

Oh, and just for review:

Molzon made more than Slocum. Slocum made more than the new kid with a big nose.

It’s always about the money. Anyone who replaces anyone in TV is making less than the person before them. #fact #jack #woogidywoogidywhack

While this may be true, the current discussion is about the four former 12 employees you mentioned earlier. It wasn’t that long ago. Short term memory problems?
Or, is it you just can’t take being wrong, and have to change the narrative to suit your agenda?
What ever the reason, you’re still wrong.
Me: “It’s all about money.”

Beerbong: “Derp! No it’s not!”

Me: Facts.

Beerbong: “Okay. You’re right. But just because it happened 100% in the past, doesn’t mean it’s happening now!”

Me: Facts about Slocum and Big Nose.

Beerbong: “Okay. You’re right. But just because it happened 100% in the past and the present, doesn’t mean it will happen in the future! DO YOU KNOW THE FUTURE?!”

Me: “Yes. Higher priced talent will continue to be replaced by lower cost talent.”

Beerbong: “I bow before you and throw myself upon your mercies.”

Me: “Go in peace. And tell others.”
