Oregon Public Broadcasting has fired KC Cowan from Oregon Art Beat. She was the original host of the show and worked on it for 10 years, according to Portland’s Willamette Week, most recently as a producer and writer for the web. “I’m deeply saddened that my relationship with OPB has come to an end,” Cowan told WW in an email. Dave Davis, OPB’s v.p. for television production, told the publication, “She no longer works here, we wish her well, and we thank her for the great work she did on Oregon Art Beat. Beyond that, we can’t say anything else. This is a personnel issue, and it’s obviously a sensitive matter.”
