“It has been a pleasure to work with him all these years,” news director Susan Sullivan writes in a note, obtained by TVSpy. “Please join me in thanking Tom for his many contributions and wishing him well in his new venture.” We hear he’s network-bound.
Llamas’ agent Rick Ramage says Llamas’ next move will be announced in the coming days.
Llamas had a fast rise through NBC, starting as an associate producer at NBC and then MSNBC, working as a campaign embed during the 2004 elections, joining NBC’s WTVJ in Miami as a reporter in 2005, then returning to WNBC in 2008 as a reporter. Three years ago he was part of the re-launch of the 5pm newscast as co-anchor.
TunedIn first reported Llamas’ departure from WNBC.
