Ron Sanders, a veteran reporter at WBZ and TV38, is out of a job after his contract was not renewed. According to The Boston Herald, Sanders’ contract was up for renewal this year. CBS brass wanted him to move to a rotating shift at 4′s bureau in Manchester, New Hampshire, but Sanders wanted no part of it.
Late last year, Sanders was inducted into the Silver Circle because of his journalism experience. Prior to his thirteen years at WBZ, Sanders was at WHDH.
Channel 4 has been somewhat of a revolving door as of late, sending scores of longtime reporters out the door. Most recently, the station has begun hiring less-experienced, less-expensive reporters, including now-former-Hartford reporter Diana Perez.
Ro Dooley Webster, spokeswoman for CBS’ Boston cluster, declined to comment, citing company policy not to comment on personnel changes.
