Reporter Jeff Butera is leaving WFTS in Tampa to join WZVN in Fort Myers.

Butera, who has worked at WFTS since 2009, will anchor the 5, 6, 7 and 11 p.m. newscasts for WZVN, the Fort Myers ABC-affiliate.

“It’s tough to leave behind the great people I’ve worked with and met along the way in Tampa Bay, but I’m excited about a new challenge,” he wrote on Facebook.

Butera replaces Len Jennings, who is joining KMBC-KCWE in Kansas City.
