John Mussoni, longtime news director at Fox' WTXF-TV Philadelphia, lost his job due to low ratings.
Mussoni is only the second news director in the station's 15-year history; general manager Roger LaMay was first.
Mussoni is the second Philadelphia news director to be out of work in recent weeks: KYW-TV's Melissa Klinzing lost her job following May sweeps. Mussoni says he'll take the rest of the summer off and consider his options in the fall.
