WGRZ Morning Anchor John Beard has not been on the air for the past week and station employees have been told that Beard is sick. A station employee told FTVLive that an email went out saying that Beard was starting to feel better and would be back this week.
But, Beard changed his Facebook page to, "former Anchor at WGRZ."
Also, a search of WGRZ's owner Tegna's jobs website shows that they are looking for a Morning Anchor.
So it appears someone is not being very honest as to what is happening at the station with the morning Anchor.
