So Where'd They Go?

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

So Where'd They Go?

Postby shyguy » Tue Apr 17, 2018 12:58 pm

I know none of this is monumental, but inquiring minds want to know . . . .

I was out of town for a month, and while we were away I read that Christine Bellport was leaving Channel 15 in the morning (I'm fine with this). But then I get back and I see Greg Jeschke leaves the anchor desk at Channel 27? Spot weatherman Bob Lesh is out at Channel 3 and ex-WKOW weatherwoman Laurie Mecurio is on in his place? Weather woman Star Derry is out at WKOW? What else did I miss?

Only one that we know is that Star is at an ABC affiliate in Indianapolis now.

I'm guessing Bob Lesh was let go, since Channel 3 ignores questions about him.

@shyguy;

Laurie Mecurio did weather at WMSN Fox47 News at Nine 04/09-04/13 last week.

WMSN, WISC, & WKOW swap weather & sports people time-n-again.

Remember David George? He is in Topeka now. http://www.ksnt.com/meet-the-team/david ... 1045430451

I miss Bob Lesh. Linked in says his channel 3 job ended in Feb. Looking for another job? Nothing on his fb.

@Beaver;

Didn't George get summarily canned for loudly-n-publicly berating a restaurant employee?

In markets the size of Madison, the news people make nothing. A lot of them go into PR or some sort of marketing position.

That's true. The chief spokesman for MPD is a former news anchor. They also show up as PR for hospitals and insurance companies. And there is an occasional one who makes it to a larger market, like Michelle Li in Seattle.

I have no idea why he was let go. I thought it was his age.
