Wow…don’t know the why…but Tegna also made a change at KING with News Director Cheryl Carson apparently out the door. Could Tegna be deserting KING and KGW talent as they get ready to perhaps absorb Cox? (Though the conflict with Tegna and Cox would only be in Seattle with KING and KIRO).
Really odd to make a double hire and then they’re gone in less than three months. Either the contract never got signed, or they got a better offer. Even when John Marler left KATU – Cathy Marshall stuck around.
I’m sure some remember Bill O’Reilly on KATU for a short year in 84-85. He exited to go on to great success. Not sure that is what we are looking at here with Haggerty. But should be interesting to see how it plays out. Also interesting to see what Tegna does with KING and KGW if they takeover Cox.
