BREAKING NEWS: WAKR/1590's Pat Kennard Exiting

This just in from Rubber City Radio news chief Ed Esposito on his new blog:

WAKR/1590 news anchor Pat Kennard is leaving the Akron station after a long, long stint in the news department of WAKR.

Esposito isn't saying where Kennard will go after her last day at Rubber City (August 24th), but notes that it's "an excellent opportunity for Pat and we are very happy for her."

Many of us who've been around Northeast Ohio also remember Pat for her work at formerly co-owned TV 23 (WAKR/WAKC).

More as we learn more...

sorry to hear that pat is leaving 1590. she truly is a professional who objectively reports the news without editorializing or becoming the story. truly a class act who will be sorely missed in akron. best wishes to her in her new endeavor.--david5258

Sad news. Pat's one of the last of a breed of "old school" broadcast journalists who concentrated on substance rather than style. She'll be missed.
