UTICA -- Just a little over six months since Nexstar Broadcasting revived the local news operation at ABC affiliate WUTR and Fox afffiliate WFXV (in high-definition, no less), primary co-anchor Caroline Gable has exited the station. CNYTVNews.com readers alerted us to the change, and News Director Joe Parker confirms.
One anonymous CNYTVNews.com reader wrote to us, "She's not on the website and her Facebook page for the station has vanishes also. She hasn't been on TV this week."
Parker, who also serves as the primary anchor for the newscasts, tells CNYTVNews.com he can only confirm Gable's exit. He could not elaborate, stating, "it is Nexstar policy not to discuss personnel matters."
Looking forward, Parker tells us the search is on for a new reporter/anchor and/or multimedia journalist. Interested candidates can submit their demos and resumes to Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The facility produces Eyewitness News in High Definition on WUTR weeknights at 6pm and 11pm, and on WFXV at 10pm. The 6pm newscast is repeated on tape at 7pm on MyTV affiliate WPNY-LP.
