FTVLive was the FIRST to tell you that WTTG Anchor and FTVLive’s 2017 TV Person of Year Annie Yu had left the Fox O&O.
We were also FIRST to tell you that Yu is jumping across the street to Tegna owned WUSA to anchor the station’s weekday morning newscast. It is one of the best hires a Tegna station has made this year.
Well now the news we FIRST reported has been confirmed. An insider at WUSA tells FTVLive that Station Manager Mike Valentine sent out an internal memo yesterday afternoon, confirming what we reported.
Valentine said that the station has hired Yu and that she would be making her first appearance on the station’s air on Thursday morning.
Yu has been teasing on her social media that she will be making an announcement about her future sometime today.
Try to act surprised when she does.
