Anchor Chad Oliver has been reassigned at WBBH-WZVN in Fort Myers.

Oliver, the morning anchor for ABC-affiliated WZVN, is now the political correspondent for WBBH. He wrote on Facebook he was “asked by our company managers to leave the ABC7 anchor desk.”

“Starting tomorrow, I’ll be the purveyor of all things political for WBBH NBC2,” Oliver wrote. “Thank you for all your tremendous support on this social media platform and on the air by welcoming me in your homes every morning. Life is short. Detours are inevitable.”


The Fort Myers News-Press reports the move is one of several recent personnel changes at the station, including the departure of the station’s assistant news director Greg Turchetta, who is leaving for WOFL in Orlando.
