Longtime Richmond Anchor is Out....We Think

It appears that WRIC in Richmond has parted ways with Anchor Gene Cox.

Cox tweeted that he is now unemployed:

Cox was hired by WRIC after he "retired" from my WWBTtwo years ago.

He's the most well-known anchor in Richmond - working in the market over 40 years. 

 His bio has been scrubbed from the WRIC website and he hasn't shown up for work since last Friday.  

Station sources say management hasn't said one word about his leaving and nothing has been said to viewers.

You gots to just love the communications business.
