Longtime Tampa Weather Anchor Wayne Shattuck is leaving WFTS.
The word is that Shattuck is "retiring" at the end of the year from the station but, sources say that Shattuck did not have his contract renewed and is being pushed out.
WFTS is not talking, however, a meteorologist position has been posted on the company's website.
Shattuck was one of the original anchors who came to WFTS as the station was creating a new news department in December of 1994 and has remained with the station since. He was originally chief meteorologist, but was bumped to the morning show, in favor of fellow meteorologist Denis Phillips.
Now, it appears he's being bumped again...this time out the door.
