Page2Live reporting WPTV anchor Tim Malloy is leaving the station after 18 years for a teaching job at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. There he’ll teach journalism with emphasis on war zone work! Malloy has been to 25 countries and was embedded with US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
What’s more surprising though is that Malloy says he will be gone from the station within the month! His anchor partner Chandra Bill is leaving WPTV and the news business sometime this month as well.
Malloy told Jose Lambiet he thinks local newscasts will move to the internet and will be no more than 30 seconds.
A lot of long timers are abandoning the WPTV ship!
