Axe-swinging at WIVB

Boy! Even when you've dominated the ratings for years (and still do), the axe swings hard. Ellen Maxwell and Lisa Scott are zapped, along with some salespeople and their internet guy, along with buyouts for one of the union's people.

Imagine if they were NOT #1! Like in many, many industries, sad times in broacasting have arrived.

WIVB has lost a loyal viewer. I will find something else to watch in the mornings. They should have let go Victoria instead.

Gee ... I thought when WIVB ... got what they wanted from Time Warner $$$ wise . And US loyal viewers got Wake-Up back ... how could they break up the morning CREW ??? I`am sure they ,(LISA or Ellen) didn`t see this coming !! Sorry WIVB ... you`ve made an mistake and some WNYer`s aren`t HAPPY with your choices, I'am sure you could of found other ways to save $$$$$$$$$$

What the $#&* is going on at Channel 4?!?! You have a top-rated morning show and two of the people who made it that way are canned. The Wake-Up show will not be the same without Lisa Scott and Ellen Maxwell. What in God's name are you people thinking? Musial should have his head examined. I'm switching to Channel 2 in the morning!

I am on Channel 4's side! You don't know how many times I've thought to write and encourage the station to get rid of Lisa Scott. I'm sorry, but she needed to go a long time ago!

Yeah whatever... You probably knew her from high school and are envious of her. I bet you achieved far less then her in your life-time. She still has her friends, and it sounds like you could use some!!!
