Nashville's WZTV has decided to blow up their morning show and start over.
The station says they are taking the show in a new direction, with a new name and new anchors.
In other words....they're starting over from scratch.
The station has named Bob Sellers and Jennifer Waddell to its newly named morning newscast, FOX 17 This Morning.
“We’re taking the show in a new direction, “ says WZTV General Manager, Dominic Mancuso. “Viewers still connect the show with talent from its inception 12 years ago. It’s time to break that trend with fresh faces and a new identity, while continuing to provide 4 hours of local coverage, even after the other stations have switched to national shows out of New York.”
Sellers brings his on-air experience from Washington D.C., CNBC, and the FOX News Channel. Sellers is also a TV Agent and will continue that role with some restrictions placed on him by his agency and Sinclair Broadcasting (owner of WZTV).
Waddell comes to Nashville from KGUN in Tucson where she anchored the evening newscasts.
The brand new 'FOX 17 This Morning' hits the air September 30th.
