KGO Responds to Report Two Veteran Anchors Getting Kicked to Curb

kgo logoSan 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.

San Francisco’s KRON has made some changes to its morning anchor line up, according to bay area blogger Rich Lieberman.

Justine Waldman was moved from morning anchor in the newsroom to evening reporter while Mark Danon has been moved from the main anchor desk to Waldman’s slot in the newsroom.   James Fletcher has been tapped to fill Danon’s spot on the main anchor desk.

Lieberman has also posted a KRON staffer’s view of the station’s new graphics package,

From one of my 1001 Van Ness moles:   KRON is about to unveil a new graphics package. They test ran it for the first 15 minutes of Friday’s 5pm newscast. The graphics are full HD and include a weather wing on the left side of the screen. So far, according to my mole, “it looks stupid.”
