By Kevin Eck 

WPDE anchor Tim McGinnis (pictured right) is leaving the Myrtle Beach, S.C. ABC affiliate after eight years.

Saying he made “the tough decision to step down from the anchor desk, McGinnis went on to say, “Michelle and I didn’t want to leave the area, and have always wanted to open a restaurant. So this seemed like the perfect opportunity to follow our dream.”

McGinnis started at WPDE in 2009.


The station says Trey Paul Pictured left) from Bay News 9 in Florida replace McGinnis on the weekday evening newscasts starting Monday, February 27.
