Local TV layoffs, pick-ups: You can't tell the players without a program

The revolving door continues to spin at the two-headed monster known as Channel 31 and Channel 2/

The (snicker) Deuce

. In July, the outlet

laid off five editorial employees, including main Channel 31 weatherman Chris Dunn and reporter Charlie Brennan

, who got away from the

Rocky Mountain News

before its closure only to go down with a different ship. Now comes word that prep-sports expert Marcia Neville, who became a cost-cutting victim at Channel 4 after more than twenty years at the station,

hasn't been offered a new contract at Channel 31

, which hired her a couple of years back.

But as Neville fades from the Fox affiliate, a familiar face has reappeared. Specifically, Nick Carter, a weather forecaster who got the heave-ho from Channel 9 in January, popped up on a Channel 31 news program this past weekend. Apparently, the folks at 31/The Deuce discovered that putting on a show without any personnel is kinda hard. But that probably won't stop them from trying.
