Randy Shaw joins Charles and Nadine
Fired by channel 6, longtime anchor joins KREM-TV in May
By Jim Kershner
Shaw, in a statement, said that he was “glad to be joining a great news operation for which I have always had genuine respect.”
KREM-2 general manager Bud Brown said that the anchoring duties will be split among the three, but that he hasn’t yet determined the schedule. KREM-2 also produces the 10 p.m. newscast on sister station KSKN-22.
“We have four prime-time newscasts on two different stations,” said Brown. “I do know that all three (anchors) will be on prime-time shows.”
KREM-2 also announced Thursday that it had signed Rowe to a new three-year contract. Rowe said he was pleased with his new deal.
“There are plenty of newscasts to go around,” said Rowe. “And the trend is for more.”
Shaw has a lawsuit pending against KHQ-6, which fired him over issues stemming from a workplace harassment charge. He had been an anchor at KHQ-6 for more than 17 years.
