Bring Angie Austin BACK to KWGN's CW2
Angie Austin, a former KWGN news anchor was recently let go after 10 hard years of service and dedication. She made alot of people smile and her followers looked forward to waking up to her reports every morning. Sadly, she was let go. KWGN's reason? They dediced not to renew her contract. She never got a public goodbye to her fans and followers. Her fans and followers want her back on the air. Here is the story as submitted by the Denver Post: Long-time Denver TV morning anchor Angie Austin was let go by KWGN-Channel 2 last week. After 10 years, the station chose not to renew Austin's contract. Her last day on the air was Wednesday. Austin was surprised by the station's decision, which ran counter to what she had been told. "When my contract expired in a few months ago, My news director (Ed Kosowski) told me he was offering me a morning anchor position, so I knew I was being renewed. When he met with me last week and told me it was my last day at the station.. to say I was surprised would be an understatement," Austin said via email. "Do I wish it would have been handled differently? Yes. Am I bitter or angry? No. It's just business." Austin was not allowed to say goodbye to her followers but did write a Facebook message: "I'm not the first news person not to be renewed!! I'm approximately number 1,579,010... I feel blessed to have worked for over a decade with such a great bunch of co-workers." With three young kids, ages two, four and six, Austin said the change in early-morning hours may be "a blessing in disguise." Station management did not respond to requests for comment.
