This isn’t very funny on April Fool’s Day. CBS O&O stations all around have fallen victim to budget cuts over the last few weeks. KDKA-TV (2) and WPCW-TV (19) were affected with about 10 positions eliminated.
According to the Post-Gazette, John Cater’s former anchor/reporter position will not be filled after all. Likewise, Don Cannon’s contract is up this summer and it is likely that he will not return. Cannon has been off the air since late summer ’07 with various health issues. The rest of the positions cut were behind the scenes and it appears likely that nobody on the air will be let go anytime soon.
