KUSA Chief Meteorologist Kathy Sabine celebrates 25 years on the air giving Denver viewers the forecast. She is a big star in Denver and one of the most recognizable faces in the market.

But, she works at a Tegna station and you know what that means?

Sabine says that her contract with KUSA is about to expire, and refers to her future with the station as uncertain.

Two things Tegna hates to see on their talent, gray hair or a big paycheck.

In a long interview with Westword, Sabine talks about her uncertain future at the station:

What's next for you?

Well, nobody knows this, but my contract is up in a few months. So the future at this point is really kind of uncertain.

Are negotiations for a new contract under way?

The station has reached out to my agent, and they're talking.

Are you leaning one direction or another?

At this age and stage, I feel so fortunate, because I have a lot of opportunities. I guess the answer would be that I'm not leaning in any particular direction, but it's a good time of reflection.

Have your kids gotten to the age where it would be easier to consider relocating?

I don't know if that's a piece of the puzzle, in terms of when opportunities come and why. But it's nice to have options and nice to consider those things.

I don't want to ruin anything or stir up any trouble. I'm happy, and my intention is to stay. But there is some uncertainty. It's been an amazing 25 years at Channel 9, and if this winds up being the end of the road for this chapter in my life, what a great ride.
