News came nearly a year ago that former WBKI host and VP Dan Spangler was suing the station for discrimination.
I hear there’s something in the works on that front but no one wants to talk on-the-record about it.
Now, via the WBKI website, we learn that Craig Hoffman (many remember him from his days at WAVE3 and, uh, I’ll leave it at that so I don’t have to delve into gossip territory) has been put out to pasture (thanks to his “resignation” a few weeks ago):
WBKI-TV thanks veteran news anchor Craig Hoffman for his many years of service and his numerous contributions to the station and wish him well in his future ventures.
Rumors have been swirling for months and months that Hoffman was allegedly involved in the Spangler mess and that he’d been butting heads with the station’s new right-wing ownership. His departure from the station did not, as some have suggested, come as a shock to the station.
So what gives?
