Chris Stanford Out at KMOV

Chris-StanfordThe St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Chris Stanford, an anchor/reporter, has been fired from CBS affiliate KMOV.

KMOV VP and GM Mark Pimentel told TVSpy that ”Chris’s last day was last Friday.”

“They basically were saying that (Stanford’s employment at KMOV) wasn’t a good fit,” Stanford told the Post-Dispatch. “I don’t know what to say to that, since my last review was around the end of 2013. And at that time, they said I ‘met expectations.”

He’d been at the St. Louis station since March 2013. Prior to that, he worked at WCCO in Minneapolis as a weekend anchor and reporter.

The new station, WECP, will be available over the air — that is, using rabbit ears — on channel 18 at mid-morning. Viewers will need to rescan their TVs to pick up the signal, said Curt Molander, general manager for WJHG, the sister station of WECP and WTVY in Dothan, Ala., which has served as the Panama City market’s CBS affiliate since the early 1960s.
