WCNC news tv, Charlotte North Carolina, has reacted like many companies in corporate America. Instead of getting to the root of a declining market share of audience, they have let go some of their best assets, veteran newsman John Snyder and professional weather forecaster, Terri Bennett. I will venture a guess that they will lose more market share after this move. The only reason some people even watched WCNC news was because of people like John Snyder and Terri Bennett. People are already disenchanted with network news and many people, particularly the young, are getting their news from the internet. Wake up corporate America, your most valuable assets are your customers and your employees. Listen to the public and your employees. I watch less network news, but I did watch John Snyder and Terri Bennett. Maybe there is something wrong with the way you are doing business, your product for example.
I went to the Charlotte Observer online and the article about John Snyder being upset and saying goodbye. There were posts from people echoing my thoughts about WCNC, John Snyder, Terri Bennett and their “death wish”. The article is dated Dec 08, 2007. If you share my concerns, post a remark on this blog, on the Charlotte Observer site or contact WCNC or WCNC.com. The Observer link is here or you can search on John Snyder WCNC.
