Dave Malkoff leaving TWC
« on: February 16, 2023, 06:03:45 PM »
I heard yesterday on Twitter that Dave Malkoff has officially left TWC after 10 years. He said his position was eliminated. Here's his official post on Twitter: https://twitter.com/malkoff/status/1625986329157705728

Is this a sign that more people may be getting axed in the near term? I sure hope not.

We haven't had any major exits in awhile. Not since Maria at least.

I don't know who they could possibly get rid of at this point other than Alex Wallace - like...I doubt he's more popular than Jim, Jen, Stephanie, Mike, Alex Wilson or Kelly.

I think financially, twc is barely hanging on by a thread. Someone said something to Jeff Morrow and he implied on Twitter the staff there is very light unlike years ago when they had close to 250-300 meteorologists.

This could potentially explain why the last major exit we had was Maria back in 2018. They probably can't afford to replace people like Kelly Cass (who is around the age of Vivian Brown when she was let go) or essentially anyone there that works hard and has a marketable face to the network (Mike, Stephanie, Jim, Jen, etc)
