The Axe at 19 WXIX

Finally, we have news about the WXIX-TV cuts, but...this wasn't a station initiated move! We missed this only due to computer troubles that were going on much of the week, or we would have posted this before Tuesday...

Jack Atherton, the anchor of the station's two evening shows since their inceptions, left the station on Tuesday night following the 10pm newscast. This was his decision, according to WXIX officials.

Those same WXIX officials will not comment more on the departure, BUT it's being reported that it's a contract dispute that resulted in Atherton's departure.

Furthermore, there's a rumor floating around that he will go to WLWT-TV/DT 5.

Our best wishes to Mr. Atherton...
