KARE-11 News Director Fired

Tom Lindner, KARE-11's longtime news director, announced that he was leaving the station Wednesday, according to the Star Tribune.

Lindner, a University of Minnnesota graduate, had been the news director since 1996, the Pioneer Press said.

"I was simply told that they wanted a change," Lindner told Star Tribune staff in a phone conversation. He said that it was not his decision.

John Remes, KARE's general manager, wouldn't give any specifics about Lindner's departure, but said that the decision did not come from KARE's corporate parent Gannett.
