Cleveland’s WEWS did not renew the contracts of morning anchors Kimberly Gill (right) and Pete Kenworthy, TVSpy has learned.
“My contract with WEWS was set to expire August 5, 2011,” Gill told TVSpy in an email. “I was told Tuesday, July 5, 2011 that it would not be renewed.”
“Our employment relationships are private,” WEWS news director Jill Manuel told TVSpy in an email. “We do not discuss them in public.”
Gill and Kenworthy have not been seen on the Cleveland ABC affiliate since July 5. “Good Morning Cleveland” has been anchored by Curtis Jackson since then. However, both anchors have been active on their Twitter feeds, responding to eagle-eyed Cleveland viewers who noticed the two were not in their usual morning seats.
