What's up with Sydnie Kohara?; KPIX Morning anchor says Goodbye

Yes, I 'm wondering too and have put out feelers.

Just as soon as I get some info, I'll post.


So far, all I know is that Kohara split from the screen. Money, I'm told, wasn't the entire reason, if at all. There's a lot to this nugget and we'll try to get to the heart of it.

For those of you late to the party, Sydnie Kohara had an unanticipated, fast "take care, I'm gone", from the KPIX airwaves last week. Yes, sudden as all get go.

We're on it.

  2. Yes, I was one of those late to the Sydnie party. It is only in recent months, after seeing her on Ch. 5, I said "Wow! What an impressive woman! Handles herself well on the air, stunning, and classy." Come back, Sydnie!!!

  3. Man Rich, you have to get to the bottom of this one! After supposedly renegotiating her contract last fall, and now she quits? I can understand why she may have quit though, as working with that Frank Mallencoat dude would be awful. Still though, there are subtle hints that she was looking to get out, with the establishment of a new Facebook page for Sydnie Kohara, and she now has her own website. She is clearly advertising her availability. Maybe the guilt over cheating on her former TV husband John Kessler, with that Frank dude, finally got to her! ;-)

  4. I was puzzled after watching her make the announcement last Friday.I thought,"Why Sydnie?" and also I thought,"Well,that's it for me,time to move to another channel." I mean,this newscast at one time had a chemistry that seemed unparallelled on the other stations.Kessler,Kohara and Humphries were a team I looked forward to watching,no matter what events were taking place at the time. Now, these current people are just talking heads with dry,stiff personalities.I'd rather watch the crawl on the bottom of the screen..matter of fact,I'd rather watch a snail crawl across the sidewalk than watch that plastic Mellencoat or Barbie Girl Wenker..blech!!

  5. Yeah, curious to hear what happened. She was better than her boring new partner Frank.

  6. Job's that easy are like hens teeth. And at her age,she is fighting the ageist ceiling in TV.
    I can't see that she quit. Or if she did,she was pushed to make that decision. Kristy Seifken troubles?? something...

  7. Is it so hard to figure out? KPIX wanted to get cheaper and younger. Goodbye Sydnie!

  8. Yeah watch Kristy fucking Siefkin end up in the anchor chair. She has slithered her way into the studios at KPIX, after having no mercy and chewed her way through KRON

  11. Boring is the word. I finally realized thatI just couldn't hang with the new team more than five minutes. Still not wild about the new Channel 11 team, but anything is better than Frank. He traveled across the country for this? Couldn't they find anyone less boring closer?
