Drats. One of the Bay Area's most esteemed and throaty-voiced anchors, Tom Sinkovitz, will be departing NBC 11. The former KRON anchor spent nearly three years at the Bay Area's NBC affiliate. "Sinkovitz' departure coincides with ex-sports anchor, Raj Mathai, ascent to the position of news anchor at NBC Bay Area, which no doubt played a part in Sinkovitz' decision." reports Rich Lieberman, local media blogger who scooped Sinkovitz's departure.

His final show was last Friday.

"In a few weeks time, the station and I will be discussing other avenues. For now, I'm looking forward to life without the daily commute," Sinkovitz explains to Lieberman.
