Investigative reporter Jacob Long has hit the exit after one year at Tegna’s KSDK in St. Louis to become St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson‘s new spokesman.
It was his second time around at the station and last just over a year before he decided to leave the business.
Long was also a reporter in Boston; Jacksonville, Florida; and Peoria, Illinois.
The inability to come to terms on a new contract has led to the departure of traffic reporter/news anchor Jennifer Reyna from Graham Media’s KPRC in Houston.
She’d been with her hometown station for more than 13 years.
In a statement, station gm Jerry Martin wrote, “After a long, good faith negotiation between both parties, we could not come to a new agreement.”
Friday was her last day.
San Antonio reporter David Catalbiano is headed west after signing off from Sinclair duopoly WOAI-KABB over the weekend.
After a year and a half in the market, he is joining another duopoly, Meredith’s KTVK-KPHO in Phoenix, AZ.
It’s a return to his hometown and a chance to work with his college mentor, Morgan Loew.
