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.

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.
Drew soicher is the man
Bring Drew Soicher back! At least he had a sense of humor!
