George Flickinger Fired
This starts with Flickinger explaining the station policy and how his actions followed it. “This weekend during Game 7 of the NBA semifinals here on ABC 13, we had a tornado warning in our area.
This weekend, per our severe weather policy, we broke into programming with the tornado warning and allowed you to continue watching Game 7 on a split-screen. But apparently, that upset some of you.”
Flickinger then plays angry voicemails, including “And I’d just like to say, I thank you for absolutely ruining Game 7 of Denver versus Portland because you have to show a [bleeped] tornado warning for over half an hour.”
This is B.S., you guys are terrible at your jobs.” And he then says “Tonight, we are not going to apologize for what we did. Whenever there’s a tornado warning, lives are at risk.”
Flickinger then shows photos of past local tornado damage and describes them, and concludes with a wrap-up. “Thankfully, no lives were lost, and that’s why we go on TV and stay on over programming and commercials.
You never know when someone new is tuning in and looking for critical information to protect themselves and their families. We take this responsibility very seriously, and if we had a chance to do it all over again, we would. Thank you for watching ABC 13, especially during severe weather.”
It’s also interesting that Flickinger’s at the center of this, as he reportedly previously lost another job (at Tulsa Fox affiliate KOKI) in 2005 for breaking into NFL programming with a wildfire alert. Here’s more on what happened there from Rita Sherrow’s January 2006 Tulsa World writeup
