"TV news personal being forced to retire..." 'Judith Whitehead' (inspiration Sunday)

Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York
( A suburb of Buffalo, N.Y.)
 and has worked in the ophthalmology
 field of medicine for over 30 years
TV news personal being forced to retire

It seems lately in Buffalo all the news channels are cutting loose our senior announcers, weather men etc.  


They are all in their 60's and are being forced to "retire" and are being replaced by much younger people. Of course the young ones will work for much less but it is unconscionable to put our senior workers out to pasture; all dedicated workers for the last 30 yrs. 
TV news anchors are being
replaced as well as  the sports
and weather announcers.
Not fun getting old...


They are very short sited...who do they think the general public of 5 o'clock news watchers are? Not the people in their 20's and 30's but the senior age people who enjoy the old standards.  If they think this will entice a new crowd of news watchers, they are mistaken. 

 Young people do not sit down to dinner at 5pm and watch the news.  They are far too busy  working late and going  to activities with their friends.  

Now they will alienate the senior watchers and I will be curious to see if the ratings fall.  Very short sited in my opinion.

P.S.

I remember my dad saying the same thing when he was in his mid 50's. This has always been the way in America. Look at Jay Leno and the tonight show. NBC forced him into retirement and his tonight show was beating everyone in that time slot... Welcome the Newsman to the winter of their lives! ;-)

Don't these idiots that make the decisions have any common sense---I always watch MSNBC when I eat my dinner and, as you say, these young people don't have time but to get a snack and go elsewhere. Keep up the great work.
