Imagine coming back from vacation; rested, relaxed and ready re-engage, only to be fired? Welcome to TV. DuaneDudek.com is reporting that's exactly what happened to WDJT-TV ND Genie Garner.
Garner came to Milwaukee from KITV-TV in Honolulu (Why she'd leave paradise, is another mystery). Her tenure hasn't been without turmoil. In 2013 WDJT owner Weigel Broadcast Company was hit with a bias complaint, alleging Garner referred to the Hispanic community as "illegal aliens'.
The station's 10pm newscast did improve to 3rd place, but hey, let's not let any success get in the way of a good termination.
