Anchor Gus Rosendale Leaving KSTP for New York


By Andrew Gauthier Comment

Anchor Gus Rosendale is leaving KSTP in Minneapolis-St. Paul for a job in New York.

Rosendale, who joined KSTP in December 2010, told Star Tribune gossip columnist C.J. this week that he has landed “an on-air gig in New York.”  Though he wouldn’t confirm where he is going, the word on the street is that he’s joining WNBC.

Both Rosendale and WNBC have not yet returned requests for comment.

Before joining KSTP, Rosendale was the main anchor at WPTZ in Burlington-Plattsburgh.  His final day with the Twin Cities ABC-affiliate will reportedly be Friday.  He expects to start in New York in “a couple of weeks.”
