Cindy Matthews Returns To TV
Cindy Matthews -- who vanished from Ch 9 last summer -- returns to TV Friday to fill in during Sheila Gray's maternity leave from "Fox 19 In The Morning." Matthews will appear on the show Thursday, and then co-host with Rob Williams on Friday, the day Gray is scheduled to deliver her baby.
Matthews was last seen subbing during Kathrine Nero's maternity leave from Ch 9's morning show. Ch 9 news director Bob Morford told me last fall Matthews was taking some time off from TV to travel Asia and elsewhere. She called Ch. 19 to offer her services knowing that Gray was expecting soon, and Tricia Macke was headed for maternity leave immediately after the May sweeps ends May 23.
"I think Cindy is a great choice. She'll do a good job, and she's such a nice person," Gray says.
