Bounced in the Burgh


WPIX (Pittsburgh) Morning anchor Jennifer Abney is no longer with  the station. 

Abney, who was hired in late 2008 came to the Burgh after anchor stints in Mobile, Ala., and Wilmington, N.C.

The details of her departure are unknown.

"Jennifer is no longer with us. She has been a terrific employee who helped our morning efforts immensely," WPXI GM Ray Carter told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

"In her nearly five years with us, she was part of a lot of major news stories, including the Stanton Heights shootings, the G-20 Summit and the Steelers' appearance in the Super Bowl in Dallas," news director Mike Oliveria said. "Behind the scenes, she made everyone feel a part of the morning team. We wish her nothing but the best going forward."

Oliveira said the station is searching for her replacement and expects a hire should be announced by the end of July.
