Notice a trend? KTVU reporters are leaving the Oakland station in abundance. Some are the most tenured and talented too.
Because Fox-owned KTVU doesn't regard reporters as very important to the news platform, that's why. Therefore, most good reporters will leave and seek work elsewhere if they can get more money, or at least enough to make a living and garner respect. It's not just reporters but anchors too (see Rowlands) Fox simply won't pay other than those already under contract or those who will take the lean pickings because they love the Bay Area lifestyle and will work on the cheap. It works both way though: some can't afford the prices here and leave out of necessity.
