I don't read magazines anymore. I stopped back in the early 90's when the net went mainstream and I got my first new PC. I did read one last month at the doctors office but it was all nasty and old and had boogers all over it.Eeeeewwwww!

I haven't done much reading myself since 2000. Keep buying books and stopped subscribing to magazines; but been too addicted to the internet to read printed material anymore. I used to be a printer and I know how hard it is to get a job in the print trade anymore. Or maybe that has to do with me being half deaf and middle aged?

Better realign resources, slang for C.E.O needs new 3rd vacation home. They are in a dying profession, better figure out something new and fast. People who manufactured wagon wheels had to change eventually.

it appears that Meredith has joined with the rest of the corporate world, by not caring about the people that work for them. Bottom line is really bunk. How about the top line like the CEO and the Chairman of the board taking a cut in pay to keep those folks working. I really dont think that Des Moines can afford to let folks go without work when the top spots are making mulit million dollar salaries. Cutting out duplication of products..what does Better homes and gardens have to do with Parents magazines? come on meredith.....

I never heard of anyone retiring from Mededith unless they were corporate. But I'm glad I'm out of there.

I think the word is out. Too many have had a bad experience with Meredith. They'll have problems recruiting quality people.

They just like to fire people. They hire them to fire them. They get their jollies by firing people.
Now, didn't you wonder what happened to all those bullies that were in high school? They're working at Meredith.

WGCL once had a chief engineer who asked his male staff members if they liked women. He was trying to determine which ones were gay so he could railroad them.

I had heard all the rumors. I thought I could really make a difference. But I think they are too far gone. I wish them luck.

His name was Jon Smith. I think he figured out he was working for an inferior shop than the one he had left. It was the end of the line for him. Probably a first for Meredith.

What happened to my post? Meredith must have eliminated it. They'd like to eliminate me too. I'm the biggest PITA they've got.
That's alright. I'm ready for them. Come and get me. I'm packing.

So what have you been doing lately Frank? Have you found anything yet? You know that Meredith won't give you a good reference.
They don't give anybody a good reference. But we all know about Meredith.
(I don't think they would give either Ted or Ed Meredith a good reference.)

Did you hear on the Erik Eriksen Show last week, he refered to CBS46 as the "station nobody watches"?

Meredith wanted to merge with Media General a while back. But Media General would have nothing to do with them. Probably due to their reputation with Penthouse Magazine and the 14 year-old girls.
