More Sports Changes at 9News; Soicher Lands in Phoenix

Michael Roberts at Westword reports that rumors are swirling that 9News will continue to dramatically reduce its sports staff following the departure of Drew Soicher:

“… an industry source shared a rumor with Westword that 9News expected to pare its sports staff down to former Denver Post reporter Mike Klis and a couple of MMJs — which in this context means multi-media journalists who serve as their own camera operators — and allow the contract of Rod Mackey, another veteran sports anchor, to expire.”

9News President & GM Steve Carter is denying those reports. Interestingly, Carter also says that Soicher has landed at 9News sister station 12News (NBC) in Phoenix.

  1. Out of Denver for 2 years, looking forward to our favorite news and sports anchors and they are all gone? Management brain cramp? Phoenix to hot for us. New personnel too bland.
