Changes at WJLA

A tipster writes in:

    WJLA eliminated 5 positions from their promo/graphics department on Thursday, two from promotions (Larry Lane and Dominique Verdieu), two from graphics (Mike Batista and Isam Daho) and the Director of Creative Services (Stan Melton). News Director Bill Lord will now run the much smaller department (cut by one third), with the promo manager and art director reporting to him. They also do promos and graphics for Newschannel 8, and some stuff for Politico, so what was already a very busy department is gonna be even more overburdened. Tough to see a station that has grown so much start to tear itself apart…
