By Aneya Fernando 

CLHVyh8UwAEvPtJMatt Blanchette‘s time as a reporter at WLNE is coming to an end.

Blanchette announced his impending departure after three years at the Providence, R.I. ABC affiliate on Facebook a few days ago:

Today is my last day with ABC 6, and in the television industry. In many ways, it is a bittersweet day. I will actually miss the adrenaline of chasing down stories and local newsmakers… After 10 years of long nights, early mornings and plenty of weekends, I have decided to make the move to a more stable career.


Blanchette previously worked at WIBW, the CBS affiliate in Topeka, Kan., as a sports anchor and reporter.

There’s no word yet on who will replace Blanchette at WLNE or what he’ll be doing next.
