Additionally, Channel Sux sports reporter/anchor Merlin Klaus is said to have tendered his resignation again, this time to take a job with Douglas County. We have not heard what his duties there will be. If we had the power to fire everyone at WOWT, Klaus is one of about three people we'd keep. So his leaving makes perfect sense. Can you imagine having to tell people Ross Jernstrom is your boss?
As one alert reader notes, the last half of 2009 has been marked by turnover at local sports desks. KETV lost Matt Schick to radio over the summer, and WOWT's Dave Webber semi-retired in the fall to spend more time doing dental insurance and car commercials.
Isn't it about time for Ann Schatz to resurface?
