|DAVID HECKARD and WHITNEY RAY:|
Leaving Eyewitness News
Heckard, who joined WEHT in late 2006, will become the weekend meteorologist at WBBH-NBC 2, the NBC affiliate in Ft. Myers, Fla. His last day with WEHT and WTVW will be July 21.
Ray, who returned to the Eyewitness News team last year after her son's birth in 2011, is leaving television to become a full-time wife and mother. Her last day will be Aug. 9.
Freeman tells me that both Heckard and Ray have been an integral part of the resurgence of Eyewitness News in recent months, and he said it will not be easy to replace two very well-liked and well-respected members of the WEHT/WTVW family.
EDITOR'S NOTE: I'm planning to sit down with both David and Whitney when I return from vacation, so you'll hear directly from both of them about their future plans very soon. Stay tuned!
