Bob Opsahl’s Last Day Moved Up, Other Anchor Changes at WFTV

By Kevin Eck 

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.”
