Longtime WISH Anchor Eric Halvorson is leaving the station at the end of this week after 32 years.
WISH News Director Elbert Tucker informed station staffers of Halvorson’s departure Monday in a memo.
Halvorson, who now serves as anchor on early-evening and nightly newscasts, issued a statement that Tucker distributed to the staff in the memo.
“I’m not sure what the future holds, though I am eager to find out—to examine new interests and, maybe, pursue some old ones,” Halvorson wrote.
A WISH spokeman said Halvorson will be on the air this week, but he declined to comment on the anchor's future with the station.
"Eric has been part of the newsroom for more than three decades and his contributions and citizenship are very much appreciated," Tucker said in his memo.
Halvorson could not be reached for comment Tuesday morning.
“I’ve enjoyed these past 32 years, but now it is time to move on,” Halvorson said in Tucker’s memo.
Sounds like to FTVLive, even though no one will say it, that someone is crossing the street to another station in the market.
