Frankly, I was sure Jennings was a goner a year ago. (I was wrong, if only by the time element, but I was wrong nonetheless) I soon found out later that ABC and Jennings put things off for a year; ABC was worried about the bad PR fallout and only later agreed to Jennings staying on as a "special projects" correspondent so it would appear that she wasn't really shown the door, but she was.
It is this simple: ABC (and they're not the only network) isn't fond of paying local TV News anchors big money especially if they skew "old" --it's not just Jennings. Spencer Christian is not long for 900 Front. Yeah, it's a cruel world.
