I've noticed The Weather Channel has been timings its dismissals around anniversaries, etc.  Are they deliberately trying to rub salt into the wounds they've inflicted?
I think it is more "September 30", "October 1" kind of thing.  I had no idea this happened.  I thought she might have been on vacation or something.  It's puzzling to me that they bring in somebody new to replace her position like that - one would think that they would have a "veteran" OCM fill-in until a suitable replacement could be found. 

Sadly, this may continue as long as the economy is as bad as it is.  If money is not coming in, they aren't going to be able to support all of the salaries.  There are likely people behind-the-scenes affected as well, I'd bet.

That is terrible that they just did that to her out of nowhere. They're going to go up there and replace her with "CRYSTAL EGGER". Like I said, and will always say, these new ones need to go somewhere and do something with themselves.

Although it is sad to see these senior mets. go, think of it as being an opportunity for them to go somewhere else and be paid more what they are worth, TWC wants to be cheap and only pay lower salaries for OCM's it seems.

Sure alex will be missed but the thing that bothers me is was there some sort of motive to fire her that we didn't know about?

I wonder if Alexandra already knew she was going to go when she did that Tomorrow's Talker segment? Yes, Alex, we've all seen that video. ;) Although I don't think her "let go" was a result of THAT, I do think that she couldn't have cared less what she said because she knew she was going to be gone anyway.

According to my source, there are two specific OCMs that are being "looked at" but nothing is set in stone. And before you go asking or PMing me on who, I will not tell you who they are, as it's confidential information.

I know you posted this days ago, but now that I think about it, I'm a little concerned about Nicole, although I don't watch TWC that much in the evenings now, I haven't seen her on WC in a long time. I hope my suspicions are wrong and I'm just being paranoid, but considering Alex's firing came out of the blue, I have to wonder if Nicole could receive the same treatment.  :(

Yes, she was on Military, then she usually gets a few days vacation after. She doesn't seem very likely to be fired/let go, she and Paul do a great job on WC. Although....Alex did a great job too then out of the blue she was fired.

their shifts are usually 8 hours, which consist of 3-4 hours on air, 4-5 behind the scenes.

Eggers on DP so that means she won't be on WC tonight. Wonder who will be? Is Alex back?
