New KMSP Anchor Randy Meier on Being Let Go by KSTP: It Felt ‘Like You’ve Been Kicked in the Stomach’

Anchor Randy Meier has joined Minneapolis-St. Paul Fox-affiliate KMSP, returning to the market where he launched his career with KSTP. In a recent video interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Meier recounted being let go by the ABC-affiliate in 2003.

“[There were] a couple of months there where you feel like you’ve been kicked in the stomach,” Meier said about not having his contract renewed after 13 years with the KSTP (video above).

Meier is set to make his on-air debut with KMSP this week.
