Tom Sinkovitz back in the Bay Area

Former KRON-Channel 4 anchor Tom Sinkovitz joins KNTV-Channel 11 as a political reporter and fill-in anchor. He starts Wednesday live from Republican debates in LA and Thurs from Democratic debate.

Tom’s been missed since his departure from KRON back in Sept. 2006. You can check out the details on the Peninsula Press Club site.

Folks have been wondering where he would turn up. Good to hear it’s back on his old stomping grounds.
