As you may have heard, Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard was given his walking papers last Friday from KARE 11 TV.  Sven, an SCSU graduate, has been a a mainstay on KARE 11 since 2006.

He was fired Friday for "continued violations" of Kare 11's "news ethics".  Sundgaard shared a post from a rabbi that referred to stay-at-home protesters as "Nazi sympathizers".

Sven made a brief comment on his Instagram & Facebook pages yesterday, stating "Many have asked me about KARE11’s post regarding my employment and separation from employment. Here's what I have to say about that for now: I disagree with and dispute my former employers claims and I am considering my options at this time."

Sven is very grateful for all the support he has received from viewers and is considering his options, for now.  He'll be missed by many after a constant presence on Central Minnesota TVs.

I've heard, from a reliable source, that Sven may be working on launching a podcast in the near future.
