WFTV has announced its anchor plans after Bob Opsahl retires.
Orlando Sentinel TV writer Hal Boedeker says Opsahl’s goodbye has been moved up two days to 6 p.m. on Wednesday instead of the Friday goodbye first reported.
Greg Warmoth is set to fill the spot left by Opsahl at 5 and 6 with Martha Sugalski. Jorge Estevez will replace Warmoth alongside Vanessa Echols at 4.
“Jorge will move off weekends around then,” said news director Matt Parcell. “We’ve hired a new weekend anchor named Len Kiese. He’s currently the morning anchor at WIS-TV in Columbia, S.C. He’ll start anchoring June 25. He’ll take the place of Ken Tyndall, who did a great job for us as we worked through the transition into Bob’s retirement.”
