WFTS morning anchor Dan Shafer (right #1) is out at the Tampa station. No reason was given for his departure, other than a statement by a WFTS spokesperson – “the station wishes him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Shafer started at WFTS in 1996 as a reporter in meteorologist. He went to the weekday morning anchor desk in 2003 and has been there since.
Almost as immediately as Shafer was shown the door, his replacement was introduced to viewers. Greg Dee (right #2) replaces Dan Shafer as primary weekday morning anchor.
Dee comes from WKYC in Cleveland. Prior to WKYC he worked KARK in Little Rock.
