Out the Door in the Natty


Longtime WKRC (Cincy) Anchor Rob Braun says that he is leaving the station at the end of the month.

It will be an end of an era in Cincinnati when he signs off.

Braun’s father Bob Braun debuted on WCPO in 1949, and hosted WLWT top-rated noon variety show from 1967 to 1984.

Braun has anchored the city's most-watched newscasts for much of his WKRC career. He has the longest tenure of all Cincinnati main evening news anchors.

Braun's departure is the seventh high-profile newsroom staffer to leave the Sinclair news in the past 18 months.

Veteran reporters Deb Dixon, Joe Webb, Jeff Hirsh and Larry Davis retired; news anchor Brad Johansen went to Raleigh, N.C.; meteorologist Brandon Orr went to Florida; and sports reporter Aly Cohen was not renewed.

Braun’s last day is June 28th.
