WVUE morning anchor Gerry Vaillancourt has been let go by the New Orleans FOX affiliate.
Vaillancourt has been the radio color analyst for the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets for the past 19 seasons.
“They said they wanted to go in a different direction,” Vaillancourt told Nola.com. “They want a ‘news anchor’ type with a news background. I can understand that.”
Vaillancourt started at WVUE in October 2012.
