Ken Lass, the popular Birmingham news anchor, is no longer with CBS 42, and according to the reactions still being posted on their fan page on Facebook, there are many upset with the decision. He’d had been with the station since late 2009.
The station also recently released one of their morning show co-anchors, Brooke Smith Weaver. Weaver, known nationally for her appearance on the second season of The Bachelor and locally as one of the original hosts of Alabama’s 13’s Daytime Alabama, announced her departure via her Facebook profile back on March 29. She’d been with the station since 2011.
There will soon be at least one more departure from the station, though this one is voluntary (and it’s been known about in some circles since mid-March). Morning meteorologist Kalee Dionne will be leaving the station this month to join Kansas City, Missouri’s KSHB 41 Action News team. She’ll be the NBC affiliate’s weekend meteorologist.
