Flint Anchor Bill Harris Departs WJRT

Bill Harris, who worked at Flint, Mich.’s WJRT-12 for 34 years, is done with them, he told Mlive.

After his contract was not renewed in April, he was asked to come back to the station to work on some special projects. Those projects are now over, and he confirms to Mlive that “the marriage wasn’t perfect,” so he’s done.

“My vision for what I want to do … didn’t mesh with (the work at) ABC12,” he said.

He has had ongoing conversations with rival stations WNEM-5 (CBS) and WEYI-25 (NBC) since summer, and may join one of them as soon as January.

Harris is a four-time Emmy winner and a viewer favorite if this Facebook post is anything to go by.
