You can give longtime KWWL Anchor Bob Waters the hook...he's leaving TV news.
Waters, the station's weekend evening anchor the past 10 years, is going to into PR (Shocking, I know) with the Amperage Marketing in Cedar Falls.
“Bob notified us well in advance of his contract expiration that he was ready for a change and, in particular, a position with normal hours,” KWWL station manager Jim McKernan said. “He did an outstanding job for the station and was well liked and respected by his colleagues and the station’s viewers. Our parting was very amicable and we wish him the best in his new position.”
Waters was fifth in seniority among the KWWL on-air staff, behind anchor Ron Steele, sports director Rick Coleman and meteorologists Mark Schnackenberg and Eileen Loan.
McKernan also confirmed KWWL reporter Michael Crowe has left the station after two years to join television station WBIR in Knoxville, Tenn.
A search for Waters’ replacement is underway.
