Longtime Nashville anchor Demetria Kalodimos has left WSMV after nearly 34 years calling the end a disappointment.
According to the Tennessean, Kalodimos called the split between her and the Meredith owned station “quite sad to end a nearly 34 year career the way this company chose to end it.”
The anchor’s contract ended December 31.
She says station management left a letter on her desk offering her a two week extension “so that the station could create the illusion that I retired,” she said.
WSMV sent a statement saying Kalodimos gave “no timely responses” to the station’s offer of “an extension of her contract for the purposes of discussions,” according to the Tennessean.
Her departure comes just weeks after former anchors filed an age discrimination suit against WSMV and its owner, Meredith Corporation. Kalodimos was named as a witness.
