SAGA COMMUNICATIONS Adult Standards KRNT-A/DES MOINES morning host STEVE GIBBONS has exited the station, and the DES MOINES REGISTER's MARC HANSEN reports that GIBBONS, who is presently awaiting a kidney transplant, was let go last THURSDAY after over 30 years at the station.
"I thought I had more value than that," GIBBONS told HANSEN. "Everybody does when they're let go. I always felt I was giving them more than they were paying me. But there comes a point when the stockholders have to get some kind of return." He added, "I'm not bitter. I know it sounds sappy, but I feel positive. I really do. For 30 years, the station was really good to me. I have a feeling something good is going to happen."
