MELANIE MORGAN LEAVING KSFO
Melanie Morgan is leaving KSFO and is in the midst of negotiating an "out" from her contract, according to a reliable broadcast source.
Morgan was absent from her Morning Show duties virtually all of last week and on Monday. Her absence was never mentioned by co-host, Brian Sussman nor traffic reporter, Katie Green.
A veteran broadcast source told me that Morgan was unhappy with relations between her on-air partners and was especially displeased and upset about the direction of the conservative-oriented program. Morgan, according to the source, felt out of place and "ganged up." She was especially peeved about the added on-air presence of Green, the younger traffic reporter who has been more noticeable of late; she has been doing news and features in addition to her traffic duties.
Morgan was co-host of the Lee Rodgers-Melanie Morgan Show in the mid-nineties and also served as a reporter for KGO Radio and KGO-TV. She returned to KSFO to pair with Sussman in January, 2012.
Attempts to reach Morgan were unsuccessful.
It is not known if a replacement for Morgan is in the works.
