Morning Anchor Shauna Khorrami Out at KLAS

After just eight months as morning co-anchor at KLAS, Shauna Khorrami is out at the Las Vegas CBS affiliate, the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Khorrami and co-anchor Cale Ramaker debuted in July. They were hired to replace Dayna Roselli, who was fired from KLAS. Station management said they were “not satisfied” with the ratings for the morning newscast.

According to Review Journal‘s Norm Clarke, Khorrami’s “work habits” could be to blame for her sudden departure:

Meantime, Khorrami’s work habits were causing consternation in the newsroom, according to sources.

On occasion, she was known to show up shortly before the show started at 4 a.m. She tested the producers’ patience, one source said, when, “during breaking news, she would be singing show tunes at her desk.”

The station sent Khorrami and Ramaker to “$1,000-a-day anchor school” for a week and launched an expensive promotional campaign to boost the morning newscast. There has been no significant ratings growth for the program, Clarke reports.

Morning Anchor Dayna Roselli Out at KLAS

Morning anchor Dayna Roselli is no longer with Las Vegas CBS-affiliate KLAS, the Las Vegas Sun reports. Her final broadcast was Monday.

Roselli’s departure comes after KLAS announced a new anchor team, Cale Ramaker and Shauna Khorrami, earlier this week.

“We are not satisfied with our position in the mornings, and that has led us to some difficult decisions,” KLAS news director Ron Comings said. “This is one of several changes we are making to better serve our morning viewers.”

Ramaker and Khorrami are not set to debut until July. In the interim, reporters Jessica Lovell and Patranya Bhoolsuwan will fill in as morning anchors.

Tapped as Lead Anchor at KSL, Dave McCann Bids Farewell to KLAS

After two decades at KLAS in Las Vegas, Dave McCann is set to join KLS in Salt Lake City as the station’s lead male anchor, and he bid farewell to his longtime home this morning.

“I’m going to call you every morning at 3:30,” McCann’s morning co-anchor Dayna Roselli joked during KLAS’s a.m. show on Friday.

A Utah native, McCann is succeeding longtime KSL anchor Bruce Lindsay, who is retiring. Read more
