KVLY-KXJB: Robin Huebner Was Not Forced Out

Fargo’s KVLY-KXJB is striking back against allegations made by former anchor Robin Huebner, who claimed in The Forum yesterday that she was immediately shown the door after putting in her two-weeks notice.

“No one forced her out,” president and general manager Jim Wareham said in an on-air editorial last night. “We were disappointed to see her go.” Video inside…

Huebner claims she resigned after being demoted and asked to take a salary cut. Wareham claims the change in her schedule was designed to “take advantage of everyone’s talents” and that the veteran anchor voluntarily chose to work fewer hours, which led to the reduction in pay.

In the editorial, Wareham also pointed out that the newspaper which originally reported on Huebner’s depature, The Forum, did not disclose in the article that they are the owner of WDAY and WDAZ, which are both direct competitors of KVLY-KXJB.
