News director Anzio Williams sent an email to WCAU staffers shortly before midnight Friday night thanking Lake for “his many years of service as a reporter and anchor at NBC10.”
“Today was Tim’s last day,” the email, which was obtained by the Inquirer, reads. “We wish him well in the future. A search for a new anchor is underway.”
Lake’s departure was not acknowledged on the broadcast. He had anchored the stations 6 and 11 p.m. newscast with Renee Chenault-Fattah since 2001.
