*The Erica Kato axe story has the eyes and ears of Media General big suits--how so? Word on the street: Because their affiliate managers are having "independent reviews" on Kato firing. Translation: Don't be surprised if MG wants Pero to reveal his specific reason(s) why Kato was bounced.
These matters usually take a lot of time when it involves personnel so the process could become gradual --maybe, maybe not.
*Multiple KRON sources: "significant" turmoil and unease" inside studio. Morale at an all-time low. (Lower than low)
*Aaron Pero at center of the heat.
*Staffer: "We're all just staying clear of his (Pero) path."
*Producers, EP's, staff weary and "afraid"--"I'm scared, (one particular evening staffer) of him."
*Mysteriously, Pero's good friend was absent from the morning news show --she called in sick on Monday. (What a coincidence)
*KRON has been besieged with e-mail complaining about the Kato firing. A "Bring Back Erica" petition has circulated.
