I'm hearing the real reason John Ogden at NBC-10 is out the door and it *wasn't* by his "own choice". He is apparently not an easy one to work with, I'm told; and over the past two years it's become an issue for management at TrafficPulse.
In addiiton, I'm told he was shown the door because he has a "low likeability quotient" the past year.
Channel 10 has been in the ratings basement behind 6 and 3 and are trying to revamp themselves on-air and give themselves a new start in the traffic department. Ogden is an employee of TrafficPulse but Channel 10 powers-that-be have the final say on whether he stays or goes. The decision was finally made that he go and December 19th is his last day.
Ogden was quoted in one of the local papers this past week as saying it is an ammicable departure for him to pursue other interests. Best of luck...
