    Wow, first owned by Clear Channel, then private equity vultures.

    Frying pan, meet fire.

    Maybe after the first of the month since we're closing in on the end of the quarter. Ugh indeed.

    Check back on Dec. 25. That may be a safe day, but no guarantees.

    That we're not alone is certainly no comfort.

    Just don't turn your computer on. That's the only way to be safe.

    No on-air talent let go. Camera operators and teleprompter operators took the hit, so look for a great newscast in a few weeks.

    Sam Zell would be pleased. Those guys don't produce any content!

    I wish it weren't so, but the SL Tribune will probably soon be laying off people, too.

    They are part of the JOA with the DesNews that has seen classified ad revenue drop by some 35 percent in about 6 months. And the Trib is losing subscribers almost three times as fast as the cross-town paper.

    So while the DesNews will trim 35 people from the staff, I imagine Mr. Singleton is just waiting for the right time to drop the axe himself.
