Sly in the Morning will no longer be the only local and regional voice of the energized liberal movement on Madison radio. Sorry, the Mic's Doug Cunningham doesn't come close to knowing this state, the political history and faces that have come and gone.
There's more here at the Wisconsin State Journal.
Here's the local TV coverage from Channel3000 and WKOW TV:
“Message to everybody: I just want to inform you that today was my last day of employment at WTDY,” Sylvester posted on his Facebook page Wednesday. “After 15 years, I was told that my services were no longer needed. I would like to thank everybody that’s supported my program. It’s been a pleasure to share this wonderful experience with you.”Here's a followup story with a little more of Sly:
By mid-afternoon, the station was playing Christmas music and its website had been replaced with a static "Happy Holidays" message. The pink slips were also handed out to Dylan Brogan, Shawn Prebil, Crystal McKenzie, Deanna Wright and Lindsay Adjavor and news director Amy Barrilleaux.
Reaction to the news has been fast and furious as droves of users across the media-sphere have vowed to not listen to any of the (groups) stations, as well as dumping those stations' mobile applications. Calls to Mid-West went unanswered at the time of this post as we attempted to get answers regarding why a successful group of broadcasters were suddenly let go.
