Portage la Prairie, MB –
CIPP-TV Channel 116 has a morale problem. MBN News anchor, Jack Hoffman(click here to read his profile), has alienated himself from the production crew by refusing to hang out with anyone other than station executives and other anchors.
A 30-year veteran, most recently from the prestigious market of Truro, Nova Scotia, has been out on the town with station owner, Ryan Coke and his wife Wonnita, Sales Manager, Robin Banks and Sports Director Marshall Law but has rebuffed overtures from the technical team to go out for a brewsky.
Hoffman decline to comment on the allegations but he did say in passing that he didn’t move to Portage la Prairie to hang out with a bunch of former French-fry factory workers.
Initial excitement and anticipation among staff members about the launch of the new station has turned to backstabbing and gossip. Production team members vow to get back at Hoffman passive aggressively, by causing embarrassing errors on the live newscasts.
Owner, Ryan Coke, responded to the retaliation threats. “I really don’t care what they do. If they can’t work it out and we can’t have business as usual then f#@% them,” Coke said. “Nobody will see it cause the ratings for our news cast will absolutely suck. We’re only doing news to make the CRTC happy.”
