McMahon Leaves KTVL; Former Broadcasters Existing In A Strange New World

Meta (Facebook and associated companies) is laying off 13% of its staff, or more than 11,000 employees, CEO Mark Zuckerberg told employees Wednesday…Lay-offs at corporate radio will be next. It is the method to their madness…John McMahon, AM Anchor/Reporter for KTVL Medford, OR., has accepted an offer from KGAN 2/Cedar Rapids, Iowa. His final broadcast for KTVL was this morning.

WTH???? Tracy Taylor needs to step up her game. Since leaving KIRO Tv, as terrific traffic reporter, Turner may be falling into the trap many office workers find themselves in. Tracy now works for the City of Kent, and Tv viewers miss her terribly. Tracy Taylor will need to get up an hour earlier or have a dresser/stylist on staff. Less should not be tolerated.

Imagining the worst case scenarios, but I have seen it in other offices. This cannot stand!

  1. Someone asked…No, Mark Thompson, formerly with KGO is not the Mark Thompson of Mark & Brian fame (KLOS and KSWD The Sound/Los Angeles) — The KGO Mark Thompson previously co-hosted with Tim Conway Jr on KFI Los Angeles, and has worked at KABC, is also a veteran TV news personality, in Denver, Los Angeles and New York, and eight years at San Francisco’s KRON-TV.​
