Piehl, 17 others axed at KSTP-TV

The Strib’s Neal Justin gets the scoop here. (I literally cannot leave the house during this grim season.)

The biggest Channel 5 name so far is Kristi Piehl, the investigative reporter behind this April’s famous (or infamous) Smiley-Faced Killers saga.

Check back for updates; I’ll try to get additional names.

Update: Nothing new for me to report, but Justin has an overview of the TV landscape here. The only thing I’d add (re: his final paragraph) is that KARE is trimming its staff, having offering buyouts just before Thanksgiving, with layoffs if financial targets aren’t met.
