Thomas Drayton is leaving WTXF, the Fox O&O in Philadelphia. The news of Drayton’s last broadcast was announced this morning on “Good Day Philadelphia.”
“It has been a pleasure. You guys are unbelievable, talented, wonderful to work with,” Drayton told “Good Day” anchors Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones.
Drayton joined the station in 2008 from KTXL, the Fox affiliate in Sacramento. He anchored WTXF’s 5 and 10 p.m. newscasts before shifting to mornings to anchor from 4:30 to 6 a.m. earlier this year.
“We want to thank Thomas for his many contributions to our station, as he was an important part of our news team for several years. We wish him success in the future,” WTXF vice president and news director Jim Driscoll said in a statement to TVSpy.
