Scott Sams and former CBS11 early morning colleagues make nice with sugar and spice

"Good luck to you, Scott. We miss you, too."

Yeah, sure they do. Bounced out of CBS11's early morning picture when his contract wasn't renewed last March, Scott Sams is now co-anchoring the 5 to 10 a.m. morning drive program on KRLD-AM radio (1080).

Both the TV and the radio station are part of the CBS corporate cluster. So it was OK for holdover waker-upper anchor Lisa Pineiro to throw a bouquet Sams' way while he amiably played the part of an old friend during a live shot Wednesday from his in-studio perch.

CBS11 still hasn't announced Sams' replacement, with staffer Keith Garvin currently filling in while Garry Seith does the weather and Teresa Frosini offers traffic updates when not riffing cougar-style with Pineiro.

Here's the video of Sams' brief on-air reunion with the station that dumped him. Pineiro noted that many viewers had asked what happened to him, and now they can be told. You can't make this stuff up. And really, why would you even try?
