Out the Door in Tampa

After 43 years, WFTS Weather Anchor Wayne Shattuck has signed off from the station last night.

While the longtime Weatherman and the station are playing it off as a retirement, sources say that Shattuck was being quietly pushed towards the door. 

Since 1994 when WFTS became the ABC station for Tampa Bay, Wayne Shattuck has been forecasting the weather for the station. 

 Shattuck parting words: "I'll be around. I'm not dying."

Because old Weatherman never die, they just get pushed out for a younger and cheeper version.

Isn't TV news just grand?
