Derek's Big News

Last Friday I was offered two jobs in Kansas City within 15 minutes. It
was a hard choice and I agonized over the decision all weekend long. I
finally decided to go with WDAF-TV, the Fox affiliate in Kansas City. I
will produce the weekend 5 p.m. newscasts and associate produce the
other three days of the week. I start in mid-March.

Thanks to all of you who kept me in your thoughts and prayers!!

Derek :-)

Winter Storm Coverage

Well, living in New England is supposed to be cold, but we've had a really mild winter...at least until yesterday. That's when the February Nor'easter came, and it just happened to fall on my day to work. That means four hours of basically unscripted coverage that went surprisingly well. It's really the first time I've done that, and it was a lot of fun. Tiring, but fun.

Actually, what was really shocking was how UN-stressed out everyone was. We were all pretty cool and just went about getting things on the air. I just told the meteorologist that next time, I'd really rather it happen on my Friday, so that I could take two days off to recover. Oh well...

Back to work!

KSN Layoffs: Part 2

There have been some rumors flying around that have gotten back to me that our own Chanda Brown may have been layed off as part of the selling of KSN. If that's true, I'm truely sorry.

It also goes against what the Wichita Eagle article said about not laying off on-air talent.

Please let me know if anyone has any further info.
