After seeing my previous entry about his tweet, KUSA anchor Kyle Clark and the promotions department were kind enough to e-mail me the full press release about Mark Koebrich and Kathy Sabine signing new contracts at KUSA. It doesn’t really add any new information other than that they did in fact sign new deals today, but it’s always nice to get information through more formal means than just tweets alone.
