Kalil said that complications from brain surgery 13 years ago make it difficult for him to anchor sports on the evening newscasts, a role he has held for 22 years.
“Reading the prompter has never been a lot of fun for me. Before I could remember what I was supposed to say. Now I can’t remember what I was supposed to say,” he said Tuesday on the evening newscast (video above). “It stinks. It stinks. It’s tough. It really is. I can’t tell you how hard it is to go out there and after every single show to think well, I did something — there’s something I can’t do now. I used to be able to do all this stuff in my sleep.”
WXIA said Kalil will continue to cover sports for the station. [h/t Access Atlanta]
