WFLD Cuts Six Jobs

May 7, 2009  •  Post A Comment

WFLD-TV, a Fox-owned television station in Chicago, cut six full-time newsroom jobs, although it didn’t let go any on-air staffers, the Chicago Tribune reports. The station also cut a dozen vacation-relief positions from its news and operations, the newspaper says. Separately, NBC-owned NBC’s WMAQ-TV in Chicago is replacing its local Sunday-morning news shows with a taped local program called “The Talk,” citing the “tough business climate,” the Tribune says.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  2. Keep focusing on your blog. I love how we can all express our feelings. This is an extremely nice blog here 🙂
