From The WTF Department: Two Favorites Let Go

With the current round of big budget cuts at The Weather Channel, anywhere from three to four on-air meteorologists, including 22-year TWC veteran Cheryl Lemke, were let go. NBC Universal headed the consortium that completed the purchase of the Atlanta-based network back in September.

Cheryl's departure marks the end of an era. I used to enjoy watching her in action.

On the Fox News Channel front, in a story broken on the TVNewser web
site, longtime anchorwoman E.D. Hill, who from 1998 until 2006 was one of the hosts of Fox & Friends, is leaving that network, with her contract not being renewed.

E.D. WAS Fox & Friends and will sorely be missed by many a viewer.
