: : This rumor is true. Channel 3 will layoff 5 people and require two week unpaid leaves for their FT employees.
: Is there something up at Morgan Murphy? (Yeah, yeah, besides the economy.) The company virtually gutted the news ops at a station they own in central Washington late last year (in a market around the size of La Crosse). Yes, it may be an apples-to-oranges comparison, but it involves the same ownership as at 3.
: Gee, and I've always considered 3 to THE top-notch TV operation in this town.

I just wanted to say “thanks” to everyone who watched and supported my work, particularly; on News 3 at 9 and News 3 at 10.
There is another round of lay-off’s underway at the station and I’ve just been informed my position is being eliminated.
I consider many of you friends and hope you’ll keep in touch:
Unfortunately, I am not alone in these lay-offs however; feel especially sad for a few of my caring co-workers who will be expected to pick up the load of anchoring, reporting– both In Depth and “On Your Side” as well as producing, writing for the shows and writing for the blog, twitter and Madison Magazine.
