San Francisco ABC owned station KGO has responded to Bay Area media blogger Rich Lieberman’s report the station will not renew the contracts of veteran anchor Cheryl Jennings and weatherman Spencer Christian come December.
“This is the latest in a long string of inaccurate and venomous ramblings by a local individual on his personal website” KGO said in a statement sent to TVSpy. “His latest post regarding two beloved KGO employees is not true and further demonstrates that he and his so-called ‘sources’ have no actual knowledge of any of our business dealings.”
Jennings has been with KGO since 1979 and has long been a fixture on the early evening and noon newscast. Christian was hired by former KGO GM Joe Ahern in 1999 after 13 years as the weatherman for ABC’s Good Morning America.
