Anchor Alicia Coates (pictured) and reporter Steve McCarron have left Fresno CBS-affiliate KGPE, the Fresno Bee reports.

Coates, the weekend anchor, has left KGPE to join KFMB, the CBS-affiliate in San Diego. Coates, who joined KGPE in 2009, will be a reporter and fill-in anchor at KFMB.

Also gone is McCarron, who has joined KPTV, the Fox-affiliate in Portland. McCarron had been a reporter and producer at KGPE for five years.

The Fresno Bee reports the station is currently searching for replacements. For now, Lemor Abrams will report for KGPE on a freelance basis. Abrams was most recently a freelance reporter at rival KMPH.
