   I read in an article in the Boston Herald a couple of days after the 
final WLVI- produced news aired that mentioned Mike Wankum would be doing 
some freelance fill in work on WCVB.

   According to the same Herald article, former weekend meteorologist Joe 
Venuti is now at WCVB as a weather producer. The article also stated a 
couple of reporters landed jobs outside the market. Lauren Jiggetts went to 
one of the Chicago TV stations, while Adam Chonak (sp?) I believe found a 
job at one of Denver's TV stations. I haven't seen or read anything about 
any of the other ex-WLVI news staffers finding new jobs as of yet.
