Bloglander: Where’s Jason Kadah?

KREM weatherman Jason Kadah, who developed a fan base with his quirky humor, was yanked off the air more than two months ago — yet the storm around his sudden and unexplained departure seems to be gaining momentum. Kadah fans have started two Facebook pages — “Jason Kadah Rocks” and “Keep Jason in Spokane” — where they speculate about his departure, mourn the loss of his off-beat humor in the mornings and post updates on his latest movements. A post from July 26 reads, “Where [oh] Where is my favorite weatherman? I wonder if he was at Skyfest...” And then, on Aug. 2: “Has anyone seen Jason around Spokane?”/Jacob Fries, Bloglander (Inlander Blog). More here. (Bloglander photo)

Question: Legal issues generally prevent an employer from discussing a former worker's departure. But do you think the media owes readers/listeners/viewer some explanation why a personality is no longer doing his/her job?
