Jason Kadah leaving Spokane

by

KREM weatherman Jason Kadah, who was yanked off the air mysteriously last summer, tells Bloglander he's leaving Spokane for the deserts of Phoenix, where he's taken a weather/news position at the CBS affiliate.

Kadah, whose fans started Facebook pages demanding his return to KREM, had developed a loyal fan base with his quirky humor after joining the Belo-owned station in 2008.

"I'll be on the same weather team with another Spokane alum, Paul Horton, who worked at KXLY some years back," he says of the new Phoenix job. "Also there is Nicole Crites, a former KREM news anchor ... I was very impressed with the station, the staff, and the management."

Kadah will be moving in a couple of weeks, but before he left, he wanted to share this message: "Please let your readers know that their support was without a doubt the highlight of 'working' here in Spokane."
