Tough week (or so) in TV Land

About the same time when Channel 6 goofed this past week with its police-shooting report, Channel 10 and Leslie Yeransian, a newish reporter, were in the process of severing ties with one another. Tom Mooney had the details in yesterday's ProJo:

A WJAR television reporter whose recent two-part series called into question the effectiveness of Rhode Island tourism centers — and set off a storm of controversy — is leaving Channel 10 as of tomorrow, the station’s general manager confirmed yesterday.

Station general manager Lisa Churchville would not say whether the departure of Leslie Yeransian was related to her report, which resulted in the station issuing an on-air apology and its ombudsman criticizing the reporting.

“We wish her well,” said Churchville.

The profile of Yeransian, who did not return an inquiry sent by N4N to her personal e-mail address has since gotten in touch with me (stay tuned), appeared gone from Channel 10's Web site by mid-week. According to her personal Web site, she's a graduate of Smith College and the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, with a specialty in business and economics from the Kellogg School of Management.
