Vern Glenn will begin his duties at KPIX shortly after the US Open. He'll anchor weekends and do reporting during the week, and occasionally fill in for weeknight anchor, Dennis O'Donnell, (who was a producer at KRON during Glenn's tour of duty).
More importantly, in Glenn's case, his salary, which was cut in half about two years ago at KRON, will be significantly higher, at least by today's standards.
Kim Coyle, who was working the weekend beat at PIX, (on a freelance basis) was essentially shown the door. There's word she may try to look to move to another market.
As for KRON, it's Radnich Monday through Friday. My best guess is that KRON will try to hire a local tonsil willing to work on the dime and shoot video. Either that, or someone outside the market who wants desperately to work in SF, at any cost. (They'll be several takers).
The move to CBS for Glenn is a godsend. He's obviously thrilled for obvious reasons. He gets more coin, he'll certainly get more exposure and he goes out, (with more than 20 years to boot), on his own terms. In the end, that's the only thing that counts.
And oh yeah, there's that other thing too. Try to figure it out.
