Ellen McNamara Leaving Tampa for Minneapolis

By Merrill Knox Comment

Ellen McNamara is leaving Tampa ABC-affiliate WFTS and heading to Minneapolis.

“Some of you already know, but I just landed a job in Minneapolis/St. Paul,” she wrote on Facebook. “I will be working M-F, anchoring an early evening newscast, and reporting during the day.”

McNamara, who joined WFTS in 2009, is a weekend morning anchor and weekday reporter for the station. Her last day on the air will be March 31. [h/t NewsBlues]
