One of their best, young anchors who was committed to the local community and they didn't even have the courtesy to inform him beforehand. Seems like the decision makers about such things (mainly Donita Todd) are the ones who need to go. First Craig Melvin and now this. I will no longer watch WIS for anything local. Gonna strictly be WLTX for me.
Craig Melvin upgraded, he's big time in NBC now and is on the Today show at times.
