Sheehan exits KNBC

KNBC-TV’s longtime entertainment critic David Sheehan has made his long-rumored departure from the Peacock O&O, sources say.

As part of his exit agreement, Sheehan is said to be prohibited from working at another station in the market during the February sweeps. Once the dust settles, however, he is expected to land back at his previous home of KCBS-TV.

The fate of Sheehan’s occasional primetime entertainment specials that aired on KNBC are still up in the air.

Neither Sheehan nor KNBC management could be reached for comment.
