Gionet is an evening news anchor and is usually paired with long-time Ch. 12/25 anchors Jeannie Blaylock and Donna Hicken. Station Manager Ken Tonning said Gionet’s last day hasn’t been determined, but the Gannett station is already looking for his replacement. “He will be leaving at some point and we will begin the search for his replacement. He’ll leave when everything comes together,” said Tonning. “We hate to lose him.” Gionet joined the station in April 1998 after serving as an anchor and reporter in Denver and has teamed up with Hicken and Blaylock for most of his tenure at the station. Tonning said the station will look all over the country for Gionet’s replacement, but the current on-air reporters and anchors also will be considered for the prime news slot. Gionet began his television career in Tupelo, Miss., where he was an anchor and reporter. He has also worked in Grand Rapids, Mich., and Providence, R.I. He declined to comment on his departure at this time.                Click here for the story...
