Mike Sigmond Leaving KETV

KETV (Cox Channel 9) I-Team consumer reporter Mike Sigmond is leaving the station.

It was widely known within the ABC affiliate that Sigmond had given notice that he was moving on, but KETV management did not return the City Weekly's calls to confirm the news. That situation changed Wednesday when Sigmond's job was posted on KETV.com.

Sigmond is an Omaha Central graduate who started at KETV as a weekend sports anchor in September 2001. He has not publicly announced what his plans are after he leaves the station at the end of May.

The posting for Sigmond's position says the qualified candidate "must be a skilled, creative writer with lots of personality."

This is a real shame.
Mike is perhaps the most multi-talented tv reporter this market has seen in 20 years...
Solid with sports, hard news, on the scene reporting, consumer reports and anchoring.

Good luck Mike

"The most Multi-talented reporter in 20 years?"

It's nice Mike Sigmond reads this blog and posts about himself.

Sigmond's a good guy. Hopefully things will work out well for him. He did wear many hats well, but I guest Todd "The Tool" Andrews took his spot.

Good Luck Siggy!

Hey, maybe Ted Brockman will resume his blog again now.

I think it was proven he was not Brockman when that blog continued when he was on honeymoon in Europe for two weeks.

We were spoiled to have him in such a small market, he belongs in a bigger city. Does anyone know what market he is going to?

I thought he did a great job on consumer reports. I hope his new job will work out well for him. I would also like to know where he is going.

1 Down...now if they just get rid of Fubar, Inspector Gadget, and Suzanne "Don't hurt my feelings or I won't be your friend "Deyo ...the "Sanjaya" of news teams will finally be no more.

"inspector gadget"?

Mike is a good reporter and handles himself well. I think Fubar needs to take Elicia Hammond with her. She has a face for radio and really needs to wear her hair down. I am stunned that Oakey doesn't scream when he turns and looks at her sometimes! Boy howdy

He has a goofy voice, but he won me over after a short while. I'll miss him and especially the consumer reports - and his ma. Good luck to him.

The television business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs.

why do you think so many good reporters and anchors aren't in the news game anymore. the good ones are gone...

Mike is getting out of the business and staying in Omaha. I wish him the best. He will be missed.

Actually, ilovenews, I have a friend that works at KETV and he said that Mike is going to WCBS in New York to be part of their Consumer team.

ACTUALLY 6:52, as someone who ACTUALLY works at KETV I can tell you without a doubt that your friend is passing on bad information. Mike is getting out of the business. If he was leaving for another station he would say so. You need a new friend.

Actually, as someone who WATCHES Channel 7 and knows of somebody who works there, Mike is moving into the Witness Protection Program.

Mike couldn't compete with Todd Andrews' hair. Dear God, how much product can one man use?

I digress. Good luck, Mike.

I say more Todd Andrews. He is all kinds of sexy.

Anonymous said...

Sure if you like a man who can't hold still with lazy eye and a pompous attitude.

Todd AndrEWWWWWWs sexy? I don't think so. The man is cross-eyed.

Geez...there must be a lot of envious guys who read this blog. Lazy eye or not Todd Andrews is hot!

Todd Andrews is cheesy and needs a haircut.

I'm glad that "doogie", or whatever, is getting out of the business. I've never heard a more forced sounding, puking "I went to school to sound like this" voice.

But I'd still prefer "doogie" over cheesy anyday.

Todd Andrews IS hot! Is he still shagging Calvert Collins? Cute couple-but he can do better...

Todd dumped her quite a while ago and from what I hear she's decided to move on by now dating his brother.
