    According to FTVLive, after months of contract negotiations Whit has decided to leave KNBC. It looks like he rejected their most recent offer. No info on where he is going. He is married to CBS2/KCAL9 anchor and reporter Andrea Fujii.

    Today in LA has been unstable since Chris Schauble and Jennifer Bjorklund left. Their glory days, of course, were when Kent Shocknek and Kathy Vara (now on KNBC weekends) anchored the show.

    I feel as though KCBS/KCAL could make good use of him, although his talent is network level. Fingers crossed for a return to CBS News

    Wonder if his wife got a job back east? Some of these reporter couples (with kids) distance between the two are amazing.

    Whit’s wife, Andrea Fujii, just anchored her last KCAL newscast informing she’s moving to New York to join her husband.
