Anchor Curt Fonger is bidding farewell to WPEC after more than two decades with the South Florida CBS-affiliate.

Fonger joined WPEC in 1989 and was the original anchor of the station’s 5 p.m. newscast. According to The Palm Beach Post, WPEC decided not to renew his contract.

Fonger, 60, has spent the majority of his career in South Florida. A native of Grand Rapids, Fonger moved to Florida in 1986, spending three years with WTVX before joining WPEC.

His final broadcast is set for Wednesday.
