Shannon Moss Out at WMTW

The Portland Press Herald reports morning anchor Shannon Moss has been let go from Portland, ME, ABC affiliate WMTW.

“It’s a fickle business,” Moss told the Press Herald. “I was told I was a fierce journalist with a great work ethic, but that viewers weren’t responding to me.”

She said she knew her contract had expired, but was surprised when told by station management on Tuesday that it would be her last day. She said she had no “ill feelings” for WMTW and wishes “the best” for her former colleagues.

WMTW president and general manager David Abel told TVSpy, the station doesn’t comment on personnel matters.

Moss had been an anchor at the station since 2007. She worked at the Portland NBC affiliate WCSH before coming to WMTW.
