KOKH Cuts Ties with News Director, Top Anchor

Oklahoma Fox-affiliate KOKH has cut ties with news director Joe Spadea and longtime anchor Andrew Speno (pictured).

“Just so you don’t hafta hear it on the streets, I parted ways w/ Fox 25,” Speno tweeted, announcing the end of a nine year run as KOKH’s main anchor.

Oklahoma City media blog The Lost Ogle reports that Spadea and Speno, as well as an employee from HR, were all fired or asked to resign this week.

No word yet on what led to the departures, although The Lost Ogle has some theories.  KOKH general manager John Rossi has not responded to multiple requests for comment.
