Waddell Signs Extension to Stay With KGUN

Posted By on Mon, Aug 9, 2010 at 4:10 PM

KGUN Channel 9 anchor Jennifer Waddell has signed a three-year contract extension with the ABC affiliate.

“We’re thrilled to have renewed our contract with Jennifer and look forward to more success,” said KGUN news director Forrest Carr.

Waddell made an impact on the market immediately upon her arrival. She has an engaging personality and ability to connect with the audience—and her ability to comprehend a variety of topics makes the usually unbearable end-of-segment chat aspect of television news palatable.

Her initial contract came to a close last month, and in the waning days of negotiations, KGUN placed an anchor-posiition posting on its Web site and national job sites. Now that Waddell and the station have agreed to terms, that job posting will probably be removed.

Oddly, Waddell was not allowed to comment for this story.
