UPDATED: Rick Delgado and Todd Lynn Fired, Others Suspended Two Weeks

2/2/05 UPDATE: More details on yesterday's firings in NY Newsday, the Daily News, Billboard

Today at 1:30 Councilman John Liu will hold a press conference, where he is expected to demand that Emmis give $10 million to Tsunami aid rather than $1 million.

It is now confirmed by John Liu's office and other sources that Emmis has fired Todd Lynn and Rick Delgado, and announced they will donate one million dollars to Tsunami relief. Miss Jones and the other staff will serve out a two-week suspension and then return, except for Miss Info who is not suspended. More details here.


The rumors that Todd Lynn was fired tonight have apparently been confirmed by the activist group Asian Media Watchdog, who report:

At about 9 PM on Monday, Lynn called Asian Media Watchdog from his home in Brooklyn saying, "You got your wish man. I'm fired. I'm gone."

More details on whether anyone else was fired are expected soon. Based on how the wind is blowing, I'm betting they fired Todd Lynn and Rick Delgado, and let Miss Jones off the hook.

Which I would find outrageous, personally. I'll post further details as they come in.
