Good evening, Netizens…
Nadine Woodward, who has been a gracious, upbeat constant in the news broadcasting industry in Spokane for nearly 20 years, was summarily dismissed from KREM-2 television’s news September 7. The pointy-headed goon from Texas in charge of her dismissal, KREM General Manager Jamie Aitken, isn’t answering either his e-mail nor voice mail, not that he ever does.
You can read the interview the Spokesman-Review’s Tom Sowa had with Woodward here http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2009/sep/11/woodward-let-go-after-19-years-krem/ and unlike the cowardly despicable policies of KREM-2/BELO, where public comments on the story of her dismissal are not being accepted, comments are being accepted to the news story at the Spokesman.
According to Sowa’s article, a lot of the reasons for Woodward’s dismissal revolve around a substantial pay cut in her unnamed salary, but that isn’t all.
“I’ve never been treated with more disrespect and dishonor in 25 years in this business,” Woodward stated in her interview.
I could not agree more. Nadine Woodward is one of the two reasons I have been, until now, a loyal fan of KREM-2 evening news, the other being award-winning Randy Shaw, her co-anchor. I can see now where this, too, will change. KREM-2 and BELO are in my cross-hairs now.
