620 WTMJ Resolves McBride Problem: Fires Her

The Journal Sentinel's Tim Cuprisin reports on his blog this evening that WTMJ fired Jessica McBride and replaced her with Dennis Miller.

Pretty quick resolution to the uproar over her tacky Jasmine Owens radio and blog item of a few days ago, in which McBride childishly used the death of a child to try and skewer Eugene Kane, one of her frequent targets.

My fellow bloggers and I raised questions about the item, and station management's role in removing the item without explanation.

I guess you could infer that the explanation has been made. The decision by management strikes me as appropriate and timely.

Case closed.
