BANGOR, Maine (AP) -- Two news co-anchors on a Maine television station quit on the air at the end of their newscasts, citing a longstanding battle with management over journalistic practices.

Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio announced their resignations at the end of Tuesday's 6 p.m. newscast on WVII.

They didn't go into details on the air. But they told the Bangor Daily News later that they were both frustrated with management.

The 28-year-old Consiglio started with WVII as a sports reporter in April 2006. The 46-year-old Michaels was the news director and spent six years at WVII.

General manager Mike Palmer says they were on their way out, anyway. He says sometimes people leave their jobs before they're asked to leave.
