WBTV (Channel 3), which reincarnated its traveling feature program four years ago and made it into a monthly prime-time series hosted by morning anchors John Carter and Christine Nelson and produced by Kevin Marlow, is canceling it.
It was doing well, says news director Dennis Milligan, but the station has decided to use the people who worked on the show on other things. No jobs are being cut, he says.
“We can use that manpower for better and stronger news in other time periods,” he says. Carter and Nelson have already expanded their morning duties by doing a two-hour newscast from 7 to 9 a.m. on WBTV’s subchannel 3.2, which carries the Bounce channel.
