Scripps owned WPTV in West Palm Beach is shaking up their morning news.
Longtime Anchors Roxanne Stein and John Favole are being pulled off the show that’s been theirs for 20 years.
An internal memo to the staff says that Stein and Favole are getting re-assigned to WPTV’s other morning newscast on the lowly rated WFLX the Fox affiliate.
Later in the day, Stein and Favole will be back on WPTV with a brand-new, one-hour broadcast set to start airing on at 11 a.m. before Rachael Ray.
Stein and Favole’s last day on the WPTV morning anchor desk is Sept. 4.
They start on WFLX Sept. 7 and on the new Channel 5 broadcast a week later.
The longtime Anchors will be replaced by Ashleigh Walters and Mike Trim on the morning newscast.
