Next TV vet done: Doug Kriegel

Subject: low key no more

Doug Kriegel has been keeping this rather close to the vest, but news of this magnitude will never stay on the down low too long. After one of the most successful, colorful, and well-fed careers of all time, Doug has decided the time has come to call it a day at KNBC. Doug's last day is tomorrow, Friday the 30th. We'll have more on Doug's career here tomorrow, but I wanted to corral as many of you as possible for a little going away toast tomorrow.


More on Doug and his time here tomorrow.
