Breaking: 415 Media Exclu: Ted Rowlands Coming Back to KTVU; Former Ace GA Reporter for CNN and Channel 2; Covered OJ Simpson and Scott Peterson Trials; Official Announcement Wednesday

 TED ROWLANDS COMING BACK TO KTVU; 415 MEDIA EXCLUSIVE

Ted Rowlands --the National Correspondent for years at CNN plus other various news stations and networks is coming back to KTVU, 415 Media has learned.

Hard to believe it's been over a decade since Rowlands first began his KTVU stint where his tenacious reporting earned him a national gig as West Coast Reporter for CNN.

Rowlands has covered high-profile stories including the OJ Simpson trial, in addition to Michael Jackson and Scott Peterson. He also covered the trials of Robert Blake and Phil Spector.

Rowland's ubiquity landed him several appearances on Larry King's CNN show during King's tenure at the cable network.

My source tells me Rowlands will both anchor and report in the field for both KTVU's main station (Fox2) and its recent KTVU Plus ancillary station (TV36).

Rowlands will begin his new duties in Jack London Square in the coming weeks; KTVU will make an official announcement on Wednesday.

  6. OMG because he is a great reporter, not because he's a white who will magically turn things around. By the way, Jesse Gary did a couple reports then disappeared. What happened? He was a a solid reporter and I was glad to see him back at KTVU then he disappeared again.

  12. Had his "15" minutes guest hosting the Larry King show. He bombed but managed to hang on. CNN refugee Don Knapp survived at KPIX but that's about all you doing going the opposite direction...survive. Ted's good live but no bueno as an anchor.
