Changes In NASCAR Media Happening Today
We are just going to start a post where readers can offer the info they may have about the termination of veteran NASCAR reporters and journalists today in Charlotte.
Steve Waid, Mike Hembree and Jeff Gluck are among those losing their jobs today. Mike Mulhern suggests on his website that Scene Daily might be closing down permanently.
Here are the Twitter messages from those as it happened:
Steve Waid (4PM): Hate to go out, but I had a helluva run at 30 years. I'll be around.
Jeff Gluck (10AM): Unfortunately, NASCAR Scene and SceneDaily.com were hit by huge cutbacks today and I was one of them. Kind of stunned at the moment.
Update: SportSlant - I believe also Rea White, David Exum, Jared Turner, David Griffin, Ben White, Mark Sluder and Shea Alexander were terminated.
This move was unexpected, but we all know the current economic struggles in today's business environment. I will be adding news to this post as it comes in.
