PA Anchor Headed to Texas

WBRE (Scranton) Main Anchor Drew Speier is moseying on down to Texas. 

Speier has been at WBRE since 2008 and his contract ends in a couple of weeks. The station offered him a new deal, but Speier tells FTVLive he was ready for a change. 

He tells FTVLive that he's headed to Corpus Christi, Texas and work at
KRIS as a weekday anchor and Executive Producer.

He says the move offered him, "a chance
to return to my home state and be closer to my 90 year old mother who I take care of along
with my brother."

Speier says that he leaves WBRE on great terms and is looking forward to the warm Texas weather. 

WBRE hired Nick Toma as his replacement.
