After 15 years of anchoring WCPO’s “Good Morning Tri-State”, Kathrine Nero was unceremoniously kicked to the curb by the Cincinnati Scripps flagship after her program Monday.
In total, she had spent 20 years at the station and suddenly she was gone.
She said goodbye via Facebook:
After 20 years here, 15 of them waking up early to bring you the news, I am now unexpectedly looking for work.
I want to thank each of you for the kind words over the years. You have embraced me like a local to the point I feel like I am one now! I’ve literally grown up here. I’ve gotten married, had two beautiful girls, survived cancer and made some incredible friends along the way.
I hope that you know how much I’ve enjoyed my job, spending my mornings with you. Now, I’ll be sleeping in and sharing that morning coffee with my family. They have no idea what they’re in for!
Whatever is next for me, remember – just as you’ve been for me for two decades, I’ll always be on your side.
She was in the middle of a three-year contract when the axe fell.
Thank you for your service. Now get the hell out.
It’s a great business with a lotta heart, isn’t it?
Her Facebook post has over 1500 comments of support and about 400 shares.
The station, of course, has zipped lips.
