KGO-TV’s ND Keeshan quits, to join NBC

Media blogger Rich Lieberman reports that longtime KGO-TV ABC7 News Director Kevin Keeshan will become the ombudsman for NBC News. Keeshan, the nephew of "Captain Kangaroo" Bob Keeshan, will be joining former KGO-TV president and general manager Valari Dobson Staab at 30 Rock. She heads NBC's owned and operated stations. Lieberman says he was told by a Channel 7 insider that Keeshan literally had a bag packed when he gathered his staff and told them he was leaving.

I just read that his cousin, Michael Derek Keeshan, died of a sudden heart attack.
