Bangor first: News Anchors Resign...on-air

Here's something we've never seen before, Bangor-based TV news anchors Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio resigned on air.

Michaels explained [we] “figured if we had tendered our resignations off the air, we would not have been allowed to say goodbye to the community on the air and that was really important for us to do that.” Adding: “was a constant disrespecting and belittling of staff and we both felt there was a lack of knowledge from ownership and upper management in running a newsroom to the extent that I was not allowed to structure and direct them professionally. I couldn’t do everything I wanted to as a news director. There was a regular undoing of decisions.”
