As we all know, change is inevitable. And that’s certainly true when it comes to the news business. So, who is leaving WFMy News 2?
Checkout this video:
It was announced today that three well-known personalities will be leaving WFMy News 2, a local TV news station in Greensboro, North Carolina. The news comes as the station is undergoing a major rebranding effort.
The stations sports director, Travis Wells, and morning show anchor, Janice Huff, will both be leaving the station later this month. Both have been with the station for over 20 years.
Huff will be moving to a position at WNCN, the CBS affiliate in Raleigh. Wells will be joining the sports team at FOX 8, also in Greensboro.
The third personality leaving the station is weather anchor Tim Murphy. Murphy has been with WFMy News 2 for 10 years and will be moving to the NBC affiliate in Charlotte.
The departures come as WFMy News 2 prepares to launch a new branding campaign and logo later this month. The changes are part of a larger effort by new owner Nexstar Media Group to standardize its stations across the country.
Departing News Anchors
News anchor Alix Cervera is leaving WFMy News 2, the station announced Monday morning.
Cervera has been with the news station since 2014. She has been a reporter and weekend anchor.
“Alix has been an excellent journalist and a trusted voice in our newsroom,” said WFMy News 2 General Manager Joshfeld in a statement. “We are sad to see her go, but we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
Cervera is the latest in a string of departures from the news station. In recent months, reporters Bo Scarbrough and Liz Lee have left the station, as well as anchors Amanda Blackburne and Kelcey Carlson.
As the Meghan Schiller leaves WFMy News 2, we are left to wonder who will fill her shoes. Meghan has been with the station for 10 years and her talent and dedication will be sorely missed.
In the meantime, we would like to wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
