Lisa Scott Is Let Go After All

The credibilty of Channel 4 General Manager Chris Musial took a little hit today with the news that morning co-anchor Lisa Scott has been let go by the top-rated news department.

Musial had said Saturday that Scott "has not been terminated" and added the station hadn't had any discussions with Scott.

Technically, that was correct. She wasn't officially let go until this morning. However, Musial's denial was a little disingenuous since he surely knew that Scott was being let go today.

On the other hand, you can understand why Musial didn't want Scott to read that she had been let go before she had been told officially.

Scott was understandably "heartbroken" when reached today and said she'll miss her co-workers and viewers.

What do you think of the way Channel 4 handled her departure? And what do you think of the decision to let her go in an economic move?
