Pratt declined to elaborate on Bates’ departure or to speculate on whether he would be replaced. In the immediate future, Pratt said, the morning show will be handled by Smith and Behrman.
Note: The Bates-related links were still live as I posted this. I wouldn't be surprised if KBOI removes them soon.
Update: Yep. Links now broken. Also, I originally retrieved the name of KBOI's morning show from KBOI's website. It was outdated and wrong. I replaced that with the current name, "KBOI 2 News This Morning."
