UPDATE: As Florida News Center reported earlier this week, Jacksonville duopoly WTEV/WAWS is blowing up their lead anchor team to “start over from scratch.” We reported that Mark Spain, Paige Kelton, and Tera Barz were on the chopping block and that the axe might not stop there.
The Jacksonville Business Journal now confirms the latter. We now know that station is blowing up their morning team as well. Morning anchors Mike Barz (the husband of Tera Barz) and Lynnsey Gardner will also be out of the door when their contracts are up.
We hear that Cox Communications (the owners of WTEV/WAWS) have began to look for talent to poach from their other stations around the country, to fill the pending vacancies. Stay tuned to Florida News Center for any further developments.
