After a morning anchor on Fox 5 in New York suddenly quit the show last week, The New York Post’s Page Six reports that she was involved in a “blowup” with the show’s producers.
Former “Good Day Wake Up” anchor Sukanya Krishnan reportedly posted online that quitting the show was “something I needed to do for myself and my family.”
“But Page Six spies tell us that they witnessed a blowup between her and the producers on the morning that she walked out,” the publication reports. “And now we’ve learned that Krishnan’s contract was being renegotiated at the time of the alleged dispute.”
The report quotes a source saying that last Thursday, the morning Krishnan left the show, “There were words exchanged [on the set], and then she had a meeting with management.”
“We’re told that after returning to set from the meeting, she started telling people it would be her last day,” The Post reports, quoting a source saying: “There was no goodbye, no mention on the show. Everybody was shocked.”
Krishnan, who filled in on “Good Day New York” after “Wake Up” wrapped, had a different take on the incident, telling The Post: “There was no blowup — it was all amicable.”
