Denise Johnson has left
WXIX and here's why

Traffic reporter Denise Johnson
says she left WXIX-TV last Wednesday



Traffic reporter Denise Johnson says she left WXIX-TV last Wednesday because she refused to accept the station's 90-day contract extension.

Johnson was hired by Channel 19 to replace Stephanie Woods in August 2013, after being let go by WCPO-TV. She said that when her contract came up for renewal, the station offered her a 90-day extension "to see if I can improve my traffic reports."





She told her bosses Wednesday that she would not accept the extension through November, Johnson told public radio station WVXU.

Johnson, a Fort Thomas native and Erlanger resident, says she's enjoying sleeping in and looking for a full-time job off the air.

She has a one-year "non-compete" clause preventing her from working for another TV news department. Johnson also is "owner/manager of Double D Erectors Fence Contractors," according to her Facebook page.
