Go On, Take The Money & Run

Lay-offs continue at NBC O&Os. KNBC said goodbye to Investigative Journalist Phil Drechsler who declined a “buy out” and then was “laid off”. KNBC’s way of saying, “One way, or another, I’m gonna lose ya – I’m gonna give you the slip -A slip of the hip or another, I’m gonna lose ya – I’m gonna trick ya, I’ll trick ya.”

“Short story… I was offered a buyout…turned it down…was laid off with all the provisions of the buy out,” Drechsler wrote on Twitter. “I’ll skip the long story. So…I have some time off.… a little runway. I love what I do. I still feel young. Let’s see what the next chapter brings. And hey……. If you know of anything…. Shoot me a PM. It was a great ride. No regrets. I got to work with some absolute legends. ✌️out.”
