Drayer out at KOMO for no good reason
I’d really been hoping that at some point we’d see an announcement that Shannon Drayer and KIRO had worked out a new deal for next season. Drayer’s really been one of the best people covering the team, most willing to confront, say, Betancourt on his defensive lapses, and it would have been sad to see her leave for next year.
But this? To fire her because the station didn’t win the next contract, and so degrading their coverage for the rest of the year? What reason do we have to pay attention to KOMO’s Mariner work at all now?
Lame. Hey Shannon, USSM’s hiring — but they won’t give us press credentials so I’m not sure we’re a good fit. And the pay is terrible. But that’s okay, because the hours suck too. Let us know.
