Another One Out the Door in Columbus

Another on air talent is leaving WBNS in Columbus.

The staff was told in a memo that longtime Political Reporter Jim Heath is leaving the station. WBNS has had quite a bit of turnover the past few months. A number of Reporters and Anchors have left the station, either on their own, or pushed out.

Heath has been in the market since 2009 and that past couple of years at WBNS.

Here is the internal email that was sent to the staff announcing Heath's departure:

From: Elbert Tucker
Date: 2014-10-24 22:09:14 +0000
To: wbns 
Subject: Jim Heath 


Jim Heath will be leaving the station next month to return to Arizona for family reasons. Jim has been a great part of the 10TV newsroom, helping spearhead our coverage of politics and government. I would put his election reporting up against any media outlet in central Ohio.

Jim's last day with us will be November 22nd. We'll celebrate with cake and more.
