WSVN morning anchor Alexis Rivera is no longer with WSVN, SFLTV just learned. Rivera, who joined 7News in 2011 as reporter, got promoted to Today In Florida co-anchor when Richard Lemus left in February 2012. Details are a bit foggy, she either did not have her contract renewed or management decided to take advantage of the opt out clause in Rivera’s contract. The clause is in effect once every two years, and allows either the talent or the TV station to end the contract for any reason without penalty. Also management may have offered Alexis Rivera the opportunity to go back to her reporting job but she allegedly declined.
Come Monday, Danielle Knox will be joining Christine Cruz and Diana Diaz at the desk.
