WTHR Anchor Will Retire From Desk but Remain at Station

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Longtime WTHR anchor John Stehr is stepping away from the anchor desk but staying on as a contributor for the Indianapolis station.

“John has made a tremendous impact on our station and across Central Indiana,” says Larry Delia, WTHR president and general manager and president of Dispatch Broadcast Group. “We cannot thank John enough for his contributions as a journalist, storyteller and ambassador of WTHR.”

Starting Dec. 22, viewers will no longer see Stehr on the desk alongside Andrew Morehead and Anne Marie Tiernon. But he’s expected to appear on the TV a fair amount in 2019 as a regular contributor for special coverage of local events.


All this week, WTHR will take a look back at his career at the station.
