KTVU reporters Ken Pritchett (pictured right) and Eric Rasmussen (left) are on their way out at the Fox-owned San Francisco Bay Area station.

The news was first reported by Bay Area media blogger Rich Lieberman and confirmed by TVSpy. Pritchett’s last day is Thursday, while Rasmussen says goodbye today.

“KTVU has been very good to me,” said Rasmussen. “The station gave me great opportunities to grow professionally over the last four years and I’m lucky to have worked with some of the best people in the business. My decision to move on wasn’t easy, but it feels like the right time for my family and me to seek the next adventure.”

Pritchett said, “The decision to leave is a tough one to make, and I leave grateful for the opportunity to have worked at such a great station.”

Pritchett has worked at KTVU since 2005 while Rasmussen has been there since 2011. He’s also worked in Chico, Calif., Champaign, Ill., Fresno, Calif. and Orlando, Fla.
