Longtime Cincinnati anchor Rob Braun is leaving CBS affiliate WKRC.
Station GM Jon Lawhead told Cincinnati.com “in a brief phone conversation that Braun will depart from WKRC at the end of June.”
He started at the station as a weekend anchor in 1985. Before that, he worked at WBIR in Knoxville, Tenn.
John Kiesewetter gave some context to the changes on-air at WKRC on Cincinnati Public Radio station WVXU’s website.
Braun’s departure is the seventh high-profile newsroom staffer to leave Channel 12 news in the past 18 months. Veteran reporters Deb Dixon, Joe Webb, Jeff Hirsh and Larry Davis retired; news anchor Brad Johansen went to Raleigh, N.C.; meteorologist Brandon Orr went to Florida; and sports reporter Aly Cohen was not renewed.
TVSpy asked Braun for comment. We’ll update when we hear back.
