Jeff Vaughn out at KENS5 San Antonio


UPDATE
KENS 5 hires Jeff Goldblatt to replace Jeff Vaughn as main anchor

Heard a rumor over the weekend that practically brand new, out of the box, KENS 5 anchor Jeff Vaughn was out at the Belo San Antonio station. Sure enough, Vaughn says the same on his Facebook page:

As of today, I no longer work for KENS5.

Although it was an enjoyable experience at KENS-TV, I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life.

Most of all I will miss delivering the news to the wonderful people of San Antonio, who have embraced and supported my family since we arrived in 2010.

Vaughn came to KENS 5 in November 2009 from mornings at KSHB, the NBC affiliate in Kansas City, Mo. He succeeded the popular Chris Marrou, who anchored at KENS for 36 years before retiring.

Before Kansas City, Vaughn worked at WDIV-TV Detroit, KCBD-TV Lubbock and KMID-TV Midland.

Jeanne Jakle of the San Antonio Express News got a no comment basically from KENS.
