Well, word has it that Jeanette Trompeter was let go today from WCCO, another victim of the ever-changing economy. My wife and I could not figure out why she was let go, when they recently hired some new people? Jeanette is very talented and really did a lot to improve the 5 pm ratings on WCCO. I guess the way of doing business is to get rid of your best people?!
KTLK and WCCO seem to follow the same playbook, even though they are worlds apart ideologically.
Jeanette, if you read this, you made great contributions to WCCO and to this community. Thank you for making the 5 pm news a little more palatable with your enthusiasm and energy. You will end up somewhere else and making great contributions wherever you end up, maybe even on one of the other networks here in the Twin Cities.
