I really didn't dig too deep into the rumor because:
a) Liz is in Seattle. Although the Emerald City has grown into Oklahoma City's biggest rival, I don't have the resources to cover their media happenings. Hell, I barely have time to do it for Oklahoma City. Did you know that Nick Bender left Channel 9, Naveen Dhaliwal ditched KOCO for New York, and Bree Steffen is out at KFOR??? Who the hell are those people? Exactly.
B) I didn't want to piss of Liz Dueweke's strong local fan base. These people still exist, and boy, did they get angry when I'd go (English Major alert) all Holden Caulfield and call out Liz for her being a goddam hot phony like Jane Gallagher. Did you know Liz would also never move her checkers pieces from the back row? At least that's what Ferris O'Brien told me.
Anyway, it looks like the Ogle Mole Network was correct (again). Liz is out at KOMO, but she's not leaving Seattle.
DIDN'T FITBlondiful Liz Dueweke, who was hired one year ago to replace Peggy Bunker as morning news anchor at KOMO-4-ABC in Seattle (Market #12), has not been renewed...One might infer that Dueweke, who was hired last April from Sinclair's KOKH-25-Fox in OK City (Market #41), did not fit.Dueweke has been hired across the street at Tribune's last-place KCPQ-13-Fox, where she will front the station's five-hour morning show from 5-10 a.m. She replaces Kaci Atchison, who will be bumped back repositioned to reporter.
In all fairness, being on a five-hour morning show that no one watches is probably more Liz Dueweke's speed. She did a great job filling that role for Channel 25 in Oklahoma City. If the new channel hires a staffer to constantly praise Liz on Twitter and reminder her that she's hotter than sunshine and lollipops, I'm sure everything will work out great.
