|Keba Arnold leaving KTVU|
Keba Arnold, the 4 PM and lead fill-in anchor at KTVU is leaving the Oakland Fox2 O and O, 415 Media has learned, exclusively, from a source familiar with the station.
Said the source:
"She's dropping KTVU like a hot potato. After a year she has had enough of KTVU and management--she's leaving."
Arnold came to Oakland from Sacramento's KXTV.
While there's going to be a ton of speculation as to why Arnold has cut the chord with KTVU, word from here is that the decision to split so soon involves numerous decisions by management and Arnold --decisions that no doubt didn't please Arnold and her future at the station.
One major move that enraged Arnold: moving her, recently, to weekends.
We'll explore more in the coming days.
In any event this has to be a kick in the gut to KTVU which had high hopes for Ms. Arnold and whose much-publicized hire was a big deal. Not anymore.
