Anchor Tracee Tolentino Leaves KQDS For WKRN

Tracee Tolentino, a weekend anchor at KQDS, is headed to WKRN in Nashville as a fill-in anchor. Her last day at the Duluth station is Monday.

Tolentino, who joined the station just last year, is the third anchor this month to depart from the Duluth Fox affiliate, The Duluth News Tribune reports. Tolentino follows the early August departure of weeknight anchor Nick LaFave, who left for KTAL in Shreveport, and the mid-August departure of Makenzi Henderson, who has not disclosed future plans.

For her part, Tolentino said the move was purely an opportunity to broadcast in a larger market. She told The News Tribune that her ultimate goal was to report in her home state of California.

LaFave, who was one of the station’s original anchors, addressed the turnover when he announced his departure on Facebook in July. “The deeper truth is that, despite the turnover, FOX 21 has done nothing but increase in ratings and quality every single ratings period,” he wrote. “That’s because it’s a TEAM product, not dependent on any one person.”
