By Kevin Eck 

Doreen Scanlon is leaving Providence, R.I. ABC affiliate WLNE after nearly 16 years.

Scanlon announced the news on social media by saying her time on-air has been “an honor.”

“I’m so grateful to have been welcomed into your homes and to be part of your day,” she shared on Facebook. “We’ve been through a lot together since 2007… a pandemic, blizzards, hurricanes and floods, financial downturns, sports wins, crazy elections, historic moments, and so many times where we’ve seen the best of people.”


Before joining WLNE in 2007, Scanlon worked at KOAM in Pittsburg, Kan., and Joplin, Mo.
