Roll Call Breaks Up with Comcast, Kills RCTV

CQ Roll Call brass has put the kabosh on Roll Call TV, a weekly television program produced in partnership with the Comcast Network.  News of the show’s demise came in the form of an internal memo from Scott Montgomery and Mark Walters this afternoon.  Although RCTV was a revenue-producing venture, those familiar with the arrangement suggest the deal was more trouble than its worth and say the newsgroup’s reporters were less than enthused to participate in the program.

“We enjoyed working with the Comcast Network to launch this show and give many of our reporters the opportunity to fine-tune their TV skills. However, we have made the business decision to end the partnership,” explained the memo.

The divorce date is set for September 27, 2011.
