Shortly after celebrating 25 years with the CBS owned station, Sacramento weather anchor Dave Bender is leaving KOVR.
In a taped on-air message, Bender thanked viewers and “all the anchors out there” he’s worked with. He also said he’s not calling it a retirement, but “maybe a battery recharge.”
“Wow! Where did the time go? Twenty-five years at CBS13 like a blink of the eye,” he said. “But I do want to thank CBS13 for giving me an opportunity to bring the weather to you each and every day for the last 25 years. It has been a blast.”
