Pushed Out in the Twin Cities


A Minneapolis News Anchor and Weather Anchor have been told that they are not having their contracts renewed.

KSTP told Anchor Brad Sattin and meteorologist Patrick Hammer  that they have 6 months left at the station.

Sattin has been with KSTP for nearly a decade, while Hammer has eight years with the station.

News director Lindsay Radford would not say what was behind the decision to get rid of Sattin and Hammer.

"That's a personnel matter that I'm not going to discuss," she said.

Radford did say that the two will remain on air for now.

"We've posted their positions, so we have to see how things work out as we move down the road," she said. "They will certainly be guaranteed employment with us for six months."

Oh boy!
