Anchor Byron Harlan exiting WFLD-Channel 32's weekend news

| No Comments

This will be Byron Harlan's final weekend at WFLD-Channel 32, where he had been co-anchoring the station's weekend newscasts for some 13 years. Harlan's contract was not renewed. His departure is part of an on-going shakeup of the WFLD news department since the arrival last fall of Michael Renda as the station's general manager. In conjunction with station news director Carol Fowler, Renda is seeking to make WFLD a real contender in the local news ratings competition. WFLD has typically been at the bottom of the barrel in the ratings. For now, Harlan's co-anchor Nancy Pender will anchor WFLD's weekend newscast solo. A new WFLD weekend news co-anchor is expected to be named at a later date.
