Jacksonville’s Longest Running Sports Anchor Leaves Station

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Sportcaster Sam Kouvaris holds a record in Jacksonville, Fl.

He was the longest running sports anchor in the market until today, which was his last day at WJXT according to Jacksonville.com.

The paper says the anchor could not come to a resolution with the station during his contract negotiations.

Kouvaris told the paper he offered up multiple options, including a salary reduction, to stay on board but the station had other plans.

The station’s general manager Bob Ellis declined to discuss the specifics with the media outlet.

Kourvaris had been with the Graham Media owned station since 1981.
