Seattle’s KOMO Hires Joel Connable as Weekend Anchor

Joel Connable, former anchor for WTVJ, will be joining Seattle ABC affiliate KOMO as weekend anchor and weekday reporter, according to sfltv.com.

Connable has been out of TV news since being let go by the Miami NBC owned station in  2009 for allegedly violating the company’s policy on free gifts.  Connable filed a lawsuit over the dismissal that is still ongoing.

The former Miami anchor comes to KOMO from Travel TV News, the company he formed after leaving WTVJ.

Last week TVSpy reported former WTVJ investigative reporter Jeff Burnside also landed a job at the Seattle ABC affiliate.
