You are a number people at every job out there! nobody cares about you. Just be wise with your money and make sure they know that you really dont need this job and they will respect you more. Never let a company dictate your life. Your life outside of work is more important.

Good move I'd say... seems like over the last several years KARE has become kind of lazy in how they cover a lot of things going on in the state. Almost like they do this brief pass over on stories just to say they covered it but not much as far as depth.. Especially if it's something that's happening right now, I've learned that KARE is usually the last to the scene if they get any live coverage at all. A far cry from their epic tornado coverage in the late 80s.

Ya think there is any hypocrisy here. Tonight on the news they announced Linder's departure but no mention of him being fired, just a glowing account of his accomplishments and skill. Maybe it had something to do with Linder being in his mid-fifties and close to retirement.

Godspeed Mr. Lindner. KARE11 has been my preferred local news for years (may have been Belinda's weather) All change is good. Sometimes you don't know why but will in all good time.

Paul Magers is doing great as a prime-time anchor for the CBS affiliate out here in L.A.

It isn't that KARE is lazy...it's that they have been forced toreduce staff because ad revenue for media has fallen...jus like the strib. High quality news gone forever because no one wants to pay.

Wonder if they had or will have a cop to escort him out of the building. COld heartless business world when he comes to firings or even resignations. Use you up and spit you out.

Kare 11 is a 1/2 hour photojournal of warm fuzzies-not a newscast.

I don't even watch the local news any longer. Why bother? It's agenda driven - always is slanted and never the truth.
