Robert at the Observer says that Channel 11 gave the boot to Regent Ducas, the now-former News Director. Ducas lasted all of five months.
This is great news! I know of multiple community groups that have been disappointed because Ch. 11 reporters have not been allowed to cover community stories since he got here. I also got a lot of behind the scenes dish over the last few months of newsroom and staffing changes which weren't well received. The first five minutes idea was flat-out awful. Ed Bark says that the general manager ordered it stopped earlier this week.
Scott Diener is now the News Director, and we wish him good luck. I look forward to having Channel 11 return to the community to highlight positive events.
