Dave Rose leaving KRDO


KRDO/Channel 13 news director Dave Rose is stepping down after 14 years with the station. He'll leave KRDO after the February sweeps period.

"It was a hard decision, really hard," Rose said. "(But) when I picture myself not getting up at 4 o'clock in the morning when it’s snowing, some of that is sort of appealing."

Rose started in broadcasting in 1968 at KRDO radio when he was still in high school. He worked his way up to become a radio and television reporter, anchoring the Saturday night news. In 1977, he moved to Washington, D.C., as a television reporter, but returned to the Springs in 1979, now with KOAA. From 1982 to 1987, he was KOAA's news director, then left to become the news director for the Business Radio Network. He returned to KRDO as assistant news director in 1994, then was promoted to news director in 1996.

Rose said he's not retiring, just looking for a job that requires a little less than 24 hours a day.

"I think my wife’s listened to the phone ring in the middle of the night long enough," he said.

You gotta read the paper. That story ran Saturday - KCCY was actually ahead, slightly, 25-54.
KRDO beat KVOR mornings 25-54, was the lead item.

Jim Berry left KKPK to become general manager for a cluster in Salida (who knew Salida had clusters?).
