Windsor Star:

Windsor's struggling radio and TV outlets took another hit Wednesday when longtime CKLW-AM announcer Melanie Deveau was fired. The 46-year-old host of AM-800's afternoon Windsor Now was among six employees -- five full-time and one part-time -- who were let go by station owner, CTV Globemedia. Also fired were 89X program director and on-air host Vince Canova, Windsor Now producer Ron Stang, program assistants Holly Hutton and Lisa Lozon, and general sales manager Sandra Naposlen. "This was certainly a shock," said Deveau, who arrived for a regular Wednesday staff meeting only to be told she was fired and sent home. Deveau has been an employee of CTV and previous owner, CHUM, since 1984. She worked for six years in Toronto before moving back to her hometown Windsor in 1990...
