On the same day that Hank Plante signed off from KPIX, word surfaced that two more Channel 5 veterans had taken buyouts — Jeffrey Schaub and Anna Duckworth. Their departures were reported by media blogger Rich Lieberman, who attributed his information to an anonymous source.
Schaub, a three-time Emmy award winner, has been at KPIX for 20 years while Duckworth has been at the CBS O&O for six years.
Schaub has been the station’s “Green Beat” reporter. Previously, he was the North Bay Bureau chief, back when stations were heavily promoting their bureaus.
Duckworth, a Bay Area native who graduated from SJSU, was at KCBS 740 and KRON before arriving at KPIX, where she was a general assignment reporter for the morning and noon editions.
