“We want to thank Brian for his 14 years of service to WTTG. We wish him much success in the future,” WTTG vice president and general manager Patrick Paolini told TVSpy in a statement.
Bolter anchors the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts solo and the 10 p.m. newscast alongside Shawn Yancy. His last day at WTTG will be Thursday.
>Update: Bolter, who owns two restaurants in the DC area, writes on his blog:
After nearly 14 years at WTTG-TV FOX 5, I recently approached the station and asked to pursue other interests. On the verge of opening DRY 85, our second restaurant in two years and with no plans to stop anytime soon, I realized it was time to finally follow my head and heart in writing this new chapter in life. The station agreed and we’re amicably parting ways.
