“Word is that a press release has been tentatively prepared to announce (Leslie) Griffith’s departure” from KTVU. That’s according to the Contra Costa Times, which points out that the co-anchor of Channel 2’s top-rated “10 O’Clock News” hasn’t been seen on the air in seven weeks. The newspaper noted that two weeks ago, KTVU general manager Tim McVay said Griffith would be back on the air “any day now.” Now he’s saying she’s on a “short-term leave” that has been extended to Oct. 27, but he refused to go into detail, citing “privacy rights.” The Times says viewers shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for her return.
