WSYR in Syracuse is going to be losing two of the three primary on-air talent for the station's “The Morning News.”
The top rated show is going to lose co-anchor Tanja Babich and meteorologist Chris Brandolino.
Both have landed new gigs outside of Central New York. Babich will be gone by the end of this month, and Brandolino will wrap up his three-year stay with channel 9 on New Year’s Eve.
News Director Rob Cartwright confirmed the upcoming departures saying that Babich is leaving after the book. So far she has yet said where she is headed.
Brandolino will finish out the year at NewsChannel 9 before moving to the southern hemisphere for the second time. Cartwright said Brandolino has accepted an opportunity with the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in Auckland, New Zealand. Brandolino’s last day on NewsChannel 9 will be December 31.
