FEDER quotes MIDWAY CEO MELODY SPANN-COOPER as telling employees that WATTS and CHAVERS "are excited about providing the programming staff with the necessary support so that we can operate at 100 percent. I am expecting 100 percent cooperation as these two dynamic leaders settle in, and as I seek a permanent and long-term solution for our very special product."
