Cincy Anchor Turns Down Contract Offer


After 14 years, WXIX Anchor Sheila Gray is signing off from the station Today.  

Gray is leaving after turning down the station's latest contract offer.  

WXIX-TV General Manager Bill Lanesey says that Fox 19 wanted to retain Gray, but she turned down a multi-year contract with a pay raise and opted to leave when her contract expires tomorrow.

“We feel we made a very fair offer for her to stay with us for multiple years, which did not include a reduction in pay. She even told me that she felt it was a very fair offer,  but she said it was in the best interest for her and her career to leave,” Lanesey told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Now word on where she is headed, but speculation is she could pop up across the street after sitting out a non-compete.
