Looks like Skor North is done.
I really liked Skor North, so I'm sad about this news. Unfortunately, with no sports on the horizon and the economy in the tank (presumably advertising revenue way down), this is probably just the beginning of job cuts for the whole industry.

To say I hated it would be an understatement, but it gave me great incentive to find a different job. Got hired at a local hos...
