St. Louis Veteran Newscaster Kim St. Onge Leaves KMOV after 10 Years – Posts List of Abuses She Was Forced to Endure After Being Granted Religious Exemption for Vaccine


My nearly 10-year career in TV news is over.
No, I didn’t quit. No, my contract wasn’t up. I was let go over the vaccine mandate.
Here’s what happened:
My religious exemption was approved only after getting a letter from a pastor at my church.
My company, Meredith, which owns KMOV, then informed me I’d need to follow these policies:
1. Wear an n95 mask at all times
2. Test twice weekly and take a time-stamped picture of the negative tests
3. When there’s an on-site meeting I must be onsite, but attend virtually…AKA sit in another room.
#3 is where I really drew the line and proves this is not just about health.
So, I’m testing TWICE weekly and wearing an N95 mask, but can’t sit in the same room as my vaccinated colleagues who we now know can not only get Covid, but still pass it to others?
I informed my union representative I did not agree to follow those policies and was let go.
I turned down a non-disclosure agreement worth several thousand dollars to not be silenced.
Some of you will staunchly disagree with my decision. I understand some of you may even feel personally offended by my choice.
But, this is too big to stay quiet. Our freedoms are being stripped away… freedoms our parents, grandparents, and so many others fought for.
Many people, including doctors and nurses who were hailed heroes in 2020, are now among the unemployed. I refuse to stand for a company dictating medical decisions for its employees, especially when it comes to an experimental vaccine.
I want my future kids to know their mom stood up for her beliefs, her morals, even though it cost their mom her job.
To all of you — thank you for welcoming me into your homes. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. While this certainly wasn’t the way I expected my career in TV news to end, as a follower of Christ, I know God has a purpose to this and will use it for good.
