Storm Warnings: Channel 5 Lays Off Promo Staff, While KRLD Fires Brad Barton
And in other media news, Jason Sickles directs our attention to this farewell from longtime KRLD-AM (1080) meterologist Brad Barton, who was unceremoniously fired after 31 years of being the most reliable Dallas weatherman this side of the ghost of Harold Taft. Truly, a stunning move -- because God knows how many times we've listened to the man warn of impending doom when the power's gone out or during a suddenly darkened drive home. This will not end well for KRLD. Or do they not recall what happened when Channel 5 fired Rebecca Miller?
