Media blogger Rich Lieberman reports that John Kessler, morning co-anchor at CBS5, will leave the station after his contract expires in mid-October.
“I’m not in their plans,” Kessler told Lieberman. “I’m very disappointed I was not able to deliver the audience they expected from me. For those that did tune in, thank you. It’s been a great ride.”
Before he got to KPIX in 2002, Kessler was an anchor at KRON. Before that, he was a radio disc jockey, working in Detroit, San Diego, Jacksonville and Charlotte. Kessler studied journalism at San Diego State and is the father of two boys.
