IN BRIEF…..COMINGS AND GOINGS EDITION

The latest exit from the tv news business for the nonprofit world is Joel Feick, drawing the curtain on a 35 year career, the last eight of them as weekend anchor and reporter at Sinclair-operated WEYI in Saginaw, MI.

The station has wasted no time in taking down his bio.

After nearly four decades on the air at Disney’s WPVI in Philadelphia, general assignment reporter John Rawlins turned in his mic flag this week.

Rawlins came to the station in 1981 after stints at stations in Lexington and Louisville, KY.

“John Rawlins exemplifies what a true journalist stands for — truth, fairness, and never-ending drive for answers,” Bernie Prazenica, president and general manager at 6ABC, said in a statement.

Chicago sportscaster Mark Giangreco is aiming to make it 28 years at Disney’s WLS, signing a new three-year deal with the station.

No numbers are available but we’re told he will continue to be the highest-paid sportscaster in the country.

Which doesn’t necessarily mean he got a raise in today’s troubled tv business atmosphere.
