Josh Thomas no longer works at Tampa, Fla., NBC affiliate WFLA.
Thomas, who went from being weekend anchor to reporter last year, has been gone from the station for a couple of weeks. There’s no word why he left or where he’s going.
His move off the anchor desk, along with morning anchor Rod Carter being replaced by Eugene Ramirez, was questioned by the Tampa Association of Black Journalists which at the time told the station “Historically, there has been a dearth of African-American male anchors in the Tampa Bay market.”
Thomas started his career in Rockford, Ill.
