KTUL's Cindy Morrison, a 12-year veteran at Channel 8, is a victim of the financial downturn. The Tulsa World is reporting this morning that Morrison's contract is not being renewed.
The paper cited Morrison's Twitter and Facebook posts as sources for the news. Her current contract expires June 30.
KTUL laid off 13 employees in October 2008 and a smaller number in January. KOTV Channel 6 has also cut its staff recently as advertising dried up.
The World also reports major losses at Cox Radio, owner of several Tulsa stations, including KRMG, the local home of Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talkers.
Net income for Cox dropped 69 percent for the quarter compared to last year. Cox cited "slower spending on advertising," according to the AP report.
