      1. I feel that Newscasters should always leave their own opinions out of their reporting…and their employers should never force their political slant on the employees…I cannot tell what really happened here, but it sounds like someone did not remain neutral, while on the air. Then again, I never have really understood the fascination that locals develop over newscasters…they are not Hollywood stars!

  1. Without knowing if there was any shift in management, it hard to know what might have brought about his release from the station. This is a business of personalities … I’ve see more than one person in this industry, who’s good at their job, get the ax simply because some new management person doesn’t like the sound of their voice (or whatever) … so they come up with some wacko reason to give them the pink slip that just enough to make it past EOE. Speculation could go on forever!

  2. Didn’t Rogers’s news partner Kjerstin Bell also leave the station recently?

    I don’t know if anyone takes local TV seriously anymore–

    1. Based on readers’ Google searches, local TV meteorologists are the center of attention. These posts get the most comments.
