WFLA-TV in Tampa fired medical reporter Irene Maher after 23 years at the station, the St. Petersburg Times reports on its TampaBay.com Web site. Owner Media General is cutting staffs at all of its media outlets, according to the site, with 250 positions expected to be eliminated in Florida alone. “I felt I was a productive person and brought a lot to the table. And I’m sorry for all the people out there who relied on my medical reports and now may not get that information,” she said.
