: : 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.
