If it's about broadcasting, radio, TV, satellite, cable, this is where to talk about it.

WTRF has apparently lost two anchors

By looking at their website, it appears that morning anchor Tessa DeTirro and evening anchor Laurie Conway have departed from 96 16th in Wheeling. Are they moving up the Nexstar food chain, leaving broadcasting, or what? If anyone knows, share, but it's a moot point anyway, given WTOV's almost-total news domination.

Tate Blanchard has also left. I believe his last day was at the end of August.

Thanks for the info on Tate Blanchard. Hopefully these folks have moved on to bigger and better opportunities, whatever they may be.
