The PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER's MICHAEL KLEIN is reporting that long-time CBS News KYW-A/PHILADELPHIA voices DON LANCER and ED KASUBA have offered to retire. LANCER, the station's Business Editor and anchor, has been with the station for most of 37 years, while KASUBA, the SOUTH JERSEY bureau chief, has been with KYW for 33 years and also serves as shop steward for AFTRA.
The station, which KLEIN reports has threatened layoffs, has asked for volunteers to be laid off, prompting the move by LANCER and KASUBA. KASUBA noted that "Management did not have to do this. They just as easily could have lopped off two people. By asking for volunteers, they did it as humanely as it could have be done."
