Latest Layoffs: Walt Maciborski Out at WFTS/Tampa

Tampa Tribune reports WFTS/Tampa has declined to renew the contract of anchor Walt Maciborski, who’s been anchoring the 5 and 5:30 at “ABC Action News” for three years.  Maciborski told the Trib, “”It was a combination of things, including the end of my contract and the economy being in the tank and my desire to explore some other opportunities.”

NOTE:  We’re looking for help in your market compiling a list of the local tv newsers who’ve lost their jobs over the last year.  Please forward names/links and suggestions for this;  we’d like to get a true sense of just what these layoffs have done to our industry.
