Just after signing off the WKBN news last night (12/6), Veteran reporter Joe Bell was told to pack up his personal belongings and go home.
Meanwhile, over at WYTV, anchor Vince Bevacqua was more concerned about the police report he had filed regarding the angry taunts on The Youngstown Vindicator’s message boards which blamed Bevacqua for causing other ‘YTV employees to lose their jobs.
Today is the day that Bevacqua, co-anchor Gina Marinelli and 25 other employees of WYTV will be escorted to the front door. 35 others were shipped off last week. Word has it that armed guards would be in place to make sure the exit happens without a hitch.
Meanwhile, there will be no local news on Channel 33 this weekend as the move is made down the road to WKBN. The sales department will be the only part of the station not moving.
