Fisher Laying Off Anchors In Oregon

Early next month, veteran KPIC News Director Dan Bain will look into the camera in the Roseburg, Ore., CBS affiliate’s studio and sign off for the last time. Bain, who has anchored the evening news in Roseburg for just short of 20 years, will lose his job March 9 when corporate parent Fisher Broadcasting eliminates the news director position at KPIC. His counterpart at co-owned KCBY Coos Bay, Tim Novotny, is being terminated at the same time. Both stations are satellites of KVAL Eugene.
