Bill Harris Leaves Michigan’s WJRT, For Good

Bill Harris, who returned to WJRT for “special projects” in May just one month after being let go by the new management team, says he is officially done with the Flint ABC-affiliate.

“My vision for what I want to do … didn’t mesh with [the work at] ABC12,” Harris told the Flint Journal. “It is hurting me deeply [but] the marriage wasn’t perfect. I really appreciated coming back.”

Harris says he is in talks with two rival WJRT rival stations: CBS-affiliate WNEM and NBC-affiliate WEYI. Though nothing official has been announced, the veteran anchor says he is interested in joining to anchor and work on special projects, perhaps as soon as January.
