Kumar Leaving Channel 7

KETV reporter Reggie Kumar is leaving the station to return to his native California. Word is that he has no job lined up but just hates it at 7, even though it's considered by many to be Omaha's most pleasant newsroom to work in.

As I understand it, that's why Pamela Jones left, too.

The actual reason for his departure is we had no White Castle's around here. Who didn't see that one coming.

That's too bad he's leaving, he's a good reporter. Good luck too you Reggie.

From what I know, Reggie does have a possible job in the Golden State..In fact, I know he's closing in on one right now that will make KETV look like small potatoes..He's a great reporter and his best quality, one that KETV overlooked repeatedly, is that he can get people to talk.

What???? You people are obviously not from channel 7. Or work in tv for that matter. Ask any of them and you'll learn the real reason he's leaving. What in the hell is this about him getting a job in CA. What are you? on crack? You people should only talk about what you know. He was practically forced out because so many people had to cover his ass for so long.

Reggie was nearly let go three months into the job. Management found out he can not write. EVERY story he writes is re-written. One manager even turned one of his stories in to a VO/SOT last minute because it was so bad. Reggie is lucky he lasted this long. If he gets a job somewhere else it won't be due to talent.
