ESKOLA's exit follows the departures of afternoon anchor JEFF MCKINNEY, evening sports talker DARK STAR, and morning entertainment news reporter TIM RUSSELL. The station announced YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 5/4) that market mainstay TOMMY MISCHKE is joining WCCO's lineup for 10p-midnight starting MONDAY (5/10).
