Robert Mak Leaves KING After Show is Canceled

The Seattle Times is reporting Robert Mak, whose political affairs show was recently canceled by KING, will be leaving the Seattle NBC affiliate.

Mak was offered the chance to stay with the station after his weekly show “Up Front with Robert Mak” was canceled.  “I appreciate the offer to stay, and after considering it seriously I simply decided it was time to start something new,” Mak told the Times.

Mak also said he hoped to stay in Seattle, “I have a lot of ideas and interests that I would like to pursue, but I’m keeping an open mind.”

Last week TVSpy reported KING executive news director Mark Ginther attributed the loss of Mak’s show to a slowdown in advertising revenue that forced the station to make cuts throughout the newsroom.
