Report: Morning show anchor, meteorologist out at KSTP


KSTP has apparently let go of morning show anchor Brad Sattin and morning/midday meteorologist Patrick Hammer, the Star Tribune reports.

Gossip columnist C.J. confirmed the pending departures with KSTP News Director Lindsay Radford Wednesday.

Sattin and Hammer reportedly received the news last week and will have six months to find other jobs, C.J. said.

According to KSTP, Sattin started with the station in 2004 and Hammer was hired in 2005.

No reasons were given as to why Sattin and Hammer were let go.

Radford told C.J. that anchor Megan Newquist and traffic reporter Rusty Gatenby would remain on the morning show.

With the move, Sattin and Hammer have become the most recent high-profile departures from the station.

In August 2012, KSTP notified longtime anchor Vineeta Sawkar that she was being taken off the anchor desk.

Sawkar left the station May 1 and was hired to become the Star Tribune's video host in June.

Last month, anchor Joy Lim Nakrim left the station to go to FOX affiliate WFXT in Boston.
