Amy Vanderoef Leaving WFAA

By Aneya Fernando 

Amy-VanderoefAmy Vanderoef, the longtime co-host of “Good Morning Texas” on Dallas’ WFAA, has decided to part ways with the ABC affiliate.

Vanderoef told Ed Bark at Uncle Barky’s Bytes that she’s leaving due to a contract dispute:

“There’s no mud-slinging, no slammed doors,” she told Bark. “We just couldn’t come to terms on my contract so we decided to part ways. We’re both sad about it. I’m looking forward to whatever’s next. Sometimes you have to take the leap without a net. You can stay in your comfort zone, but sometimes you have to find the magic.”

Vanderoef has worked at WFAA since 2006. As for what she plans to do next, she told Bark that she hopes to continue her voice-over and commercial work.

Her last day at the station is March 6. No word yet on who will replace her on the morning show.
