More on KOVR layoffs…

Twenty-six total from what I’m hearing and all over the place…both KMAX and KOVR. A couple of reporters, two photogs, engineers, sales. Most of the photo staff made it through…but one of my old shooter-buddies didn’t. Marty Hernandez – a veteran with an infectious smile and love of life and news. He took the buyout and is moving on.
This apparently is a CBS edict – make cuts and try to save the ship. That ship is gonna have to grow wings and fins and feet in order to compete in the new world.

  1. Greetings,
    Some of us from KCOY TV 12 in Santa Maria are putting together a mailing list. We all worked there in the 70’s. Looking for Marty Hernandez. Can you forward him my email?
    Thanks,
    Dave Baker (KCOY alumni)
