Whitney Vann Leaving WBRZ Morning Show

By Merrill Knox Comment

whitney vannWhitney Vann, the morning anchor at WBRZ, is leaving the Baton Rouge ABC affiliate’s morning newscast. The New Orleans Times-Picayune has details:

Vann said she holds the title as the longest-running anchor of a news program in Baton Rouge. She has appeared on “2une In” for 17 years. Vann did not offer many details about the new endeavor, but said it would lead to “new and exciting, fun adventures.” Prompted by a co-anchor, Vann also admitted it would lead to at least some programming for other WBRZ shows.

“It has been my honor and privilege and a lot of joy to get your mornings going with news, important information and some laughter along the way,” Vann said during the segment. “But 17 years of getting up in the middle of the night is exhausting. It’s time to get a little more sleep and pack on some challenges I’ve always wanted.”
