Showdown At Channel 3

Posted below is an interesting article from the May 18-25, 1988 issue of the Syracuse New Times. It describes the takeover of WSTM Channel 3 News by a company outside of Syracuse and the subsequent firing of all of its employees. The article reminded me of a similar situation in 2009 which resulted in nearly all of WTVH’s employees being fired and the shutdown of WTVH itself. Click on each image to see it full size.

Oh, and in case you were wondering – the Chickenmania article was also quite disturbing.
