TMN Eliminates Traffic Reports


The Mequon News announced that it was downsizing its staff today by one, citing the current economic downturn and the fact that written traffic summaries that are posted once a week – at best – serve no conceivable purpose.
While overall readership has been increasing, interest in traffic news on the TMN site has been non-existent. In fact, even the riveting story of the dramatic 32-minute delay on I-43 South from County Line Road to downtown on the morning of February 3rd drew no attention since its February 4th posting date. (That post is currently unavailable.)
When asked if further cuts can be expected, the editor of The Mequon News replied that none are planned, but they may be taking a close look at temporarily warehousing the TMN blimp.
