Station Says ND is was not Fired

Yesterday, FTVLive got a number of emails from sources saying that WPIX News Director Mark Effron was gone from the station.

After we posted that story, another source told us that Effron was let go just days after his father had died. We thought that was a low thing to do, even for a TV station.

After our story, FTVLive got an email from Tribune PR person Jessica Bellucci, who said  "To set the record straight, Mark returns to the station on Monday (as ND) he's out of the office this week due to his father's passing."

 Ummmm..... Stay tuned.
