Dean Danos' abrupt firing has sent unintended shockwaves throughout the KCBS newsroom.
KCBS likes to preach how much they're "family" and staffers routinely are exposed to a homey "all for one and one for all" mentality. It sounds good in theory even if it's rings a bit hollow around 855 Battery.
One view from an industry source:
" Another act of Age Discrimination at CBS masked as a reorganization. Look back at the Layoffs of Bill Schechner, Manny Ramos, Tony Russomanno, Barbara Rogers at KPIX. All let go under the guise of "down sizing", only to see those same positions filled with younger-cheaper people."
"Sadly, CBS and Corporate America have gotten used to getting away with this kind of bull shit. Most of the KPIX people never worked in TV again. Many of them, did ---however--- got a nice windfall. But Danos was member of the "throw away" PART TIME army in broadcasting and AFTRA is going to be no help at all. Just ask the KPIX Crew."
