Two local news anchors in Bangor, Maine stunned viewers when they quit on-air during Tuesday's broadcast.
WVII anchors Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio resigned at the end of the 6 p.m. newscast. "Some recent developments have come to our attention though and departing together is the best alternative we can take," Consiglio said, after thanking viewers.
The announcement surprised even the staff, many of whom had shocked looks on their faces, according to Michaels.
In an interview with the Bangor Daily News, she and Consiglio said that they had become fed up with the station's management over the past four years. They described a feud over journalistic practices.
Michaels, WVII's news director, cited "constant disrespecting and belittling of staff" and editorial intervention by higher-ups. "It’s a little complicated, but we were expected to do somewhat unbalanced news, politically, in general,” she added.
“I just wanted to know that I was doing the best job I could and was being honest and ethical as a journalist, and I thought there were times when I wasn’t able to do that,” Consiglio said
.


advisory to avelanch or anyone bothered by outdated technology and concepts:
There is a video but it requires clicking the link. I'm no expert but the quality seems quite adequate There is also a link within a link so I'm unsure of posting etiquette on that point.

They'll never work in the business again.
Very unprofessional thing to do.

Agreed. Downright stupid thing to do. They probably worked their asses off to get an on-air position. Chose to throw it away instead of resigning.

Ask Dave Hodge how it worked out for him. Since is pencil flipping at CBC on-air he's done very well for himself.

WVII/WFVX vice president and general manager Mike Palmer said that their resignation was "not unexpected."


It doesn't exactly sound like this was a massive bombshell that caught everyone by surprise.

Decent hockey analysts are hard to find and his objection to how CBC handled the issue in question was well founded IMO.

Pretty talking heads are a dime a dozen on the other hand.

I was expecting the Jerry Maguire scene where he quits his job.

Newscaster:"Don't worry, don't worry. Im not going to do what everyone expects me to do...and just FLIP OUT!! All I wanna know is....who's coming with me? Who's coming with me? anyone? Who's coming with me?"

2nd Newscaster walks into shot from offscreen:"I will go with you"

aaaaaaaand fade to black

I highly doubt any new employer will risk having them on air again.

They have settled for desk jobs.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

I don't understand why this video and this story has gone so viral. It's really not big a deal no? I mean surely this can't be the first on-air resignation

They did it in the most professional way possible. They did it at the end of the show, it was not like the started the new cast with f-bombs, and walked off. WTF are you talking about. Do you have ANY morals??
