After 16 years as the primary anchor at Toledo Fox-affiliate WUPW, Laura Emerson is signing off from the station tonight.
Emerson will anchor the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts at WPSD in Paducah, a station she called “very solid and competitive.”
“I was impressed with the people when I went down to visit,” Emerson told the Toledo Blade.
Emerson’s husband, WUPW weekend weathercaster Bruce Slusher, will stay in Toledo until their home is sold.
News director Steve France said the search is on for Emerson’s replacement, but noted hers would “not be easy shoes to fill.”
