The Ben Hoover situation has left a bad taste in people's mouths as (supposedly) his contract was not renewed. He wasn't even given a final broadcast or any kind of notice. Seems odd after all they did during the snow days was pimp him out, showing his dedication when he walked to work.

But, as always, there are two sides to every story. He may have wanted more money than they were willing to pay. WIS has refused to comment, so I'm guessing we'll never know.
Jody Barr leaving is the best news I've read in a while.
