The Scranton entertainment weekly Electric City reports that former WYOU reporter Gabrielle Prutisto and former WYOU cameraman Stephen Yevchak will share a $1.36 million "arbitration ruling" in the wake of a traffic accident they were in while on station duty. Prutisto -- now working for fellow former WYOUer Frank Andrews Shimkus, a state rep in Harrisburg -- gets $650,000, while Yevchak gets $710,000, if Electric City is to believed. What was being arbitrated? Who did the arbitrating? Is this worker's comp? A lawsuit settlement? Union stuff? Any insight would be appreciated.
