Norfolk Anchor is Out


Juliet Bickford.. 4pm Anchor at WTKR, NewsChannel 3 in Norfolk is out.

Sources say News Director Tina Luqu-Blacklocke announced to the newsroom late today that 'Juliet just left and will NOT be coming back."  Then went back into her office.

Bickford had been an anchor at WTKR for the past six years... joining her hometown station as a morning anchor after an anchor stint at WSLS in Roanoke, VA.

As usual, there has been no online or on-air mention of the high-profile Anchor's departure.   The station's web site was scrubbed of Bickford's bio page immediately.

Bickford needed the time off anyway with a wedding date of April 12 fast approaching.  (Maybe she requested some time off in the book for a honeymoon that didn't go over too well???)
