Gerald Kolpan, features reporter at Fox29 for nearly 21 years, was let go today, the station confirmed. His contract was up yesterday.

Kolpan is on the brink of a Big Literary Achievement, as his debut novel Etta is due in stores in March. The book -- a piece of historical fiction about Etta Place, who rode with the Wild Bunch (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) -- has gotten all kinds of great prepub buzz. He'll do a reading at the Free Library in April.
