Evening Anchor Tim Lake Out at WCAU in Philly

After 20 years at WCAU, Tim Lake anchored his final broadcast Friday. The Phildelphia NBC O&O did not renew his contract, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

News director Anzio Williams sent an email to WCAU staffers shortly before midnight Friday night thanking Lake for “his many years of service as a reporter and anchor at NBC10.”

“Today was Tim’s last day,” the email, which was obtained by the Inquirer, reads. “We wish him well in the future. A search for a new anchor is underway.”

Lake’s departure was not acknowledged on the broadcast. He had anchored the stations 6 and 11 p.m. newscast with Renee Chenault-Fattah since 2001.
