WPTV swaps its morning team, adds more news…

GossipExtra.com reports that changes at happening at WPTV/WFLX.

In a memo to the staff of WPTV this morning, station officials announced that longtime morning anchors Roxanne Stein and John Favole (right), are being pulled off the show that’s been theirs for 20 years. They are being re-assigned to the morning newscast on their low rated sister station, WFLX. The duo will then re-join WPTV for a brand-new, one-hour broadcast set to start airing on at 11 a.m.

Station manager Lloyd Bucher commented that “John and Roxanne have done a tremendous job helping us to retain the #1 spot in the market and I am confident that this duo will build a strong 11 a.m. newscast too.” However, a source inside WPTV told GossipExtra.com that “Rox and John are basically being put out to pasture” and that the move is “a big slap in their face.”

So, who’s going to replace the Stein & Favole on the morning show at WTPV? GossipExtra.com reports that Ashleigh Walters and Mike Trim (left) have been named the new anchors alongside reporter Chris Stewart.
