Veteran news anchor Paul Moyer may be done with KNBC-TV Channel 4, but he may not be finished with local news.
"I'm officially retired from Channel 4, but that doesn't mean I'm officially retired from the news business forever," Moyer told The Times on Friday. "I can't predict what will happen in the future. I'm not closing the door, but there's nothing out there at the moment."
While on vacation early this month, Moyer unexpectedly announced he was retiring from KNBC after 22 years but would return for a short time before selecting a final broadcast date. However, station News Director Robert Long told staffers Friday that Moyer had "decided to make the transition from vacation to retirement a seamless one, and he will not be returning to our air to say goodbye."
"I just didn't feel there was anything to gain by going back and working for another few weeks," said Moyer. "I hope that people understand why I'm not going back. I get very uncomfortable with big formal goodbyes."
