Soon-to-be-former Cincinnati anchor Rob Braun wants to clear up a few misconceptions regarding his pending departure at the end of the month from Sinclair’s WKRC.
“I don’t feel I fit well with the Sinclair News model. “
Braun is leaving at the end of the month.
He started at the station as a weekend anchor in 1985. Before that, he worked at WBIR in Knoxville, Tenn.
Braun’s departure is the seventh high-profile newsroom staffer to leave WKRC in the past 18 months.
Veteran reporters Deb Dixon, Joe Webb, Jeff Hirsh and Larry Davis retired; news anchor Brad Johansen went to Raleigh, N.C.; meteorologist Brandon Orr went to Florida; and sports reporter Aly Cohen was not renewed.
It’s been a tumultuous time at the Sinclair station….oh wait….we think we know why.
