Heather Kovar, WRBG-TV Albany’s anchor and presenter, was demoted for appearing untidy on-air on Saturday, July 9, during the live Saturday show. A statement from the television news service following the incident said that Kovar has been suspended pending the outcome of an internal investigation.
A terrible explanation for her slurring has recently been revealed by the news presenter, and it is heartbreaking. After her father, William Kovar, passed away, Kovar informed the Sun that she had been returning to work early.
As a result of her stated exhaustion and lack of sleep, she appeared tight, agitated, and stuttering more than one time.
The anchor endeavored to cover a wide range of topics, including the Oklahoma natural gas plant incident and the state’s environment.
Despite this, she keeps slurring, presenting the weather forecaster Craig Adams as Craig Gold and saying that he was performing a double duty like herself when she noticed the mistake.
After a while, she was abruptly cut off in the middle of a statement midway through the broadcast.
Greg Floyd, WRGB-weekday Albany’s evening anchor, was asked to fill in for Kovar on Saturday night’s 11 p.m. broadcast. Floyd also served as a replacement for Kovar’s Sunday night slot, which had been vacated by Floyd.
The contract with WRBG-Albany expires on July 31, 2022, and Kovar has chosen not to continue it. She remarked,
As of last Friday, I advised the station that I’ll never be extending my contract, which was set to expire on July 31.” I was supposed to work both the 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. shifts on Saturday. “I was drowsy and worn out.”
Willie Kovar, the father of Kovar, was a police officer in Texas for almost 40 years.
He was a member of the Houston Police Department, the Caldwell Police Department, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office, among other law enforcement organizations.
Willie Kovar, 85, passed away on May 13th, 2022.
