Cruising Right Out of Town

OK, this one is a bit embarrassing for WIFR in Rockford. 

The station was running spots telling viewers that they could join WIFR main Anchor Whitney Martin on an  Alaskan Cruise. Always nice when the station pimps out the talent for a sales op. 

But, it seems that Martin will not be sticking around for the boat ride. Word is that she has landed a new job in Milwaukee and WIFR has changed their cruise commercial to join Anchor  Mike Garrigan on the ship. 

This might make a number of guys that live in Mom's basement not happy. They signed up to cruise with Whitney and now they are stuck with some dude. They could have just stayed home and played Call of Duty. 

Martin has been at the station since 2007 and while no one is yet confirming that she is leaing, WIFR has posted her job on the station's website.
