D.C. Anchor Allison Seymour Leaves Fox 5 After 21 Years

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

After 21 years at WTTG, Friday was Allison Seymour’s final day at the Washington, D.C. station.

“The time has come for me to say goodbye, and most importantly, a heartfelt thank you,” the longtime morning anchor said during her sign-off.

Seymour, who has been at the Fox station since 1999, said the decision was hers. Her replacement hasn’t been named.

“Since 2007, I have been fortunate enough to serve as a main anchor of the show that I have come to love, the Fox 5 Morning Show and Good Day D.C.,” she said of her departure. “During my time at WTTG, I have felt the support of our viewers both on and off the air, through my marriage and the birth of our three daughters. In fact, I had my first-ever baby shower live on the air, and the public met Sydney, Skylar and Spencer before we even came home, thanks to a camera in our hospital rooms!”

Seymour started at the station as a general assignment reporter for the evening news. In her time at the station, she served as a health reporter, noon anchor and a midday anchor before moving to the mornings. Prior to joining WTTG, Seymour was the first woman to serve as the main anchor at the Binghamton, N.Y., station, WBNG.
