So much for Shale.tv, which was to be the online "news" outlet for Chesapeake Energy starring, as you'll no doubt recall, Tracy Rowlett, who left KTVT-Channel 11 for the venture. Notes the Fort Worth Business Press this afternoon: "Jerri Robbins, public relations manager, said the move comes in response the 'economic challenges' faced by the country and the industry." The company's statement also notes that "Tracy Rowlett, Olive Talley and John Sparks are true professionals and represent the best of the best in journalism. We are deeply disappointed that their extraordinary work will not be seen." --Robert Wilonsky
