Less than a week after one Fox 9 employee pulled a hangar out of his suit on air, another station anchor is making a surprising move. Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal announced today that Tom Halden is leaving KMSP-TV Fox 9’s morning news show after five years in the anchor seat.
His destination? Director of Communications for the W.D.O.E. The Pioneer Press confirmed that Halden’s last day at Fox 9 will be April 10. According to the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, he will start his new position on May 6, and will be responsible for The Catholic Spirit, the Archdiocesan website and social media footprint, and media relations.
May 6 is, of course, the date for the rescheduled Clergy Study Day so, alas, it seems that the delay was for no other reason than to provide an opportunity to introduce the new head of Communications. Then again, as Alexander Pope- a once persecuted Catholic himself- would remind us, ‘Hope springs eternal’.
