KATV Cuts Jobs

This from a tipster: Channel 7 (KATV) laid off nearly thirty people today, including Richard Farrester (program director of thirty+ years) and Steve Powell. More lay-offs are expected later today.

Additional: Along with on air talent Steve Powell and program director Richard Farrester, KATV layoffs also included most of the Engineering department, including fixtures James Tidwell and Fred Anderson, leaving just one Maintenance Engineer and one Computer Tech on staff. As well as the commercial production department including longtime writer/producer Dale Butler and ADDY award winning national voice talent/editor David W. Jones.

Dale Butler WAS and IS a complete joke... He should have been fired years ago. Same with the rest of the commercial prod staff. Lazy, non creative twits that should have been used more to produce better promos etc. The last really good Cameraman that could light was Benz.
