(2-16-21) The world of TV local news can be very harsh…the most recent incident took place in Rockford, Illinois…right in the middle of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Where has former WIFR TV 23 (Rockford, Illinois) Sports Director Mike Buda been for the last last month, he posted this tweet yesterday –

Susan Danforth, who is the mom of NBA Super Star Fred VanVleet, replied to Buda’s tweet –

So disappointed- thanks for all of your coverage on our family. Best wishes on your future endeavors!!

Most network affiliated stations when they release a local talent does not report this to the listening audience…why? They hope you won’t notice. It happens more then you know, not just in Rockford Illinos.
