Less that two weeks after replacing his campaign manager, Senate candidate Pete Ricketts is looking for a new press secretary. Former KETV reporter Trisha Meuret, who left the station last November to take the job, has left the campaign for "personal reasons."
Speaking on Z-92's Todd 'n' Tyler show, Meuret called her departure "amicable," but seemed somewhat hesitant to discuss the details and appeared to hedge when asked who she'll be voting for in the November election.
Her exact answer: "I don't know. It's a long time away." When pressed, Meuret later seemed to modify her stance, saying, "I really like Pete, and, at this point, it's gotta be Pete."
When asked about whether she'd like to fill an opening at KMTV, Meuret again hedged, suggesting that she is exploring lots of options and would look at any opportunities that might pop up.
We're still a little peeved that Meuret left KETV in the first place. In the wake of her departure last fall, the best replacement her old employer could scrape up was FUBAR Fazal, whose complete and utter incompetence stand in sharp contrast to Meuret's steady professionalism.
If KETV has any sense, it'll do whatever it can to get her back.
