Larry Conners no longer with KMOV

Wednesday, 22 May 2013 16:18 Published in Local News

Long-time KMOV reporter and anchor Larry Conners is no longer with the station. 

KMOV President Mark Pimentel issued the following statement:

"We regret to announce that Larry Conners is no longer a KMOV news reporter. Larry was a valued member of KMOV for a long time, and we will miss him.

For KMOV, there is no higher cause than unbiased, objective news reporting. It is what our viewers expect and it is what we work very hard to deliver. We can accept no less. Larry is certainly entitled to his opinion, but taking a personal political position on one of the Station’s Facebook pages creates an appearance of bias that is inconsistent with important journalistic standards. Larry’s departure has nothing to do with the particular position he took, but it does have to do with our belief that his actions made it impossible for him to report for KMOV on certain political matters going forward without at least an appearance of bias. Bringing you accurate and unbiased reporting is the reason we exist."

Management with KMOV pulled Conners off the air after he made posted to Facebook that the IRS had started hammering him after a 2012 interview with President Obama aired. He later clarified his post during an on-air statement, saying the his dealings with the IRS occurred years before the interview.

Conners had been with KMOV since 1986.
