In April, the Springfield, Mass. ABC affiliate brought on Dan Williams and Kim Zachary, a husband-and-wife team team of local radio hosts, to anchor the newscast. On Tuesday, the station announced on Facebook that the pair would no longer be at the helm:
After plenty of internal deliberation and your feedback, we’ve decided to steer 40 in the Morning in a ‘newsier’ direction. As such, Dan and Kim will be moving on to other opportunities. We tried to strike a balance between news and fun, but it was a challenge to get those elements to always mesh well. With all sincerity, we’d like to thank Dan & Kim for trying something new, and being game for anything thrown their way. Everyone at ABC40 wishes them well.
Julia Dunn, who was the morning anchor before Williams and Zachary signed on, was at the anchor desk this morning as a result of the mid-week change.
