This economy sucks and businesses have to make some sucky decisions because of it. Former KCCI news anchor Jeanette Trompeter just got laid off from the CBS affiliate, WCCO, in the Twin Cities. Jeanette is an extremely talented anchor who was doing the 5pm news for the station. She recently won the Emmy for best anchor. And...full disclosure...she's a friend of ours, as well. Even in these troubling times, I can't imagine it will take her long to find a job. She's just that good. The media industry right now is just getting pummeled with layoffs, freezes and pay cuts. Scary times. Really scary.
The story in the Star-Tribune makes it sound like this was an extremely difficult decision for managers to make there. I'm sure it was. Good luck, Jeanette.
