CBS O&O KYW in Philly has lost a number of on air people recently and all of them are women.
Let’s look at some recent departures from the station:
Nicole Brewer- Anchor left 6/8/18
Meisha Johnson- Traffic Anchor left 8/11/18
Anita Oh- Reporter left 8/28/18
Jessica Dean- MAIN Anchor left 9/26/18
Turnover like this in such a big market is certainly unusual and the fact that the those leaving are all women makes it more so.
Insiders tell FTVLive that the last 3 on air hires have all been Freelance and some say that CBS continues to cut costs whenever it can.
“At CBS O&O’s, flat is the new raise,” said one insider about the lack of salary increases when contracts come up.
