FOX 29's John Bolaris Given the Heave-Ho

Dan Gross reports today on that FOX 29 meteorologist John Bolaris has been given his walking papers. Bolaris was suspended last month over an interview he did with Playboy magazine. The formal word is "both parties have agreed to part ways". This very well may be Bolaris' swan song for Philadelphia TV news. He began in this market at WCAU's NBC 10 until he departed for New York's WCBS where he was eventually let go. The position is now open until management makes their next move.
