South Carolina Anchors Bree Boyce and Darryl Hood MIA from WACH

wach anchorsBree Boyce and Darryl Hood, the anchors for WACH 10:00 pm. news have gone missing from the Sinclair-owned Columbia, SC, FOX affiliate.

A check of TVeyes shows Boyce hasn’t been on-air since late June while Hood has been absent since July 1. Their bios have been removed from the station website. Sports director Brian McConchie has been anchoring the newscast.

As a former Miss South Carolina with no formal journalism experience, Boyce was a controversial hire at the station. The move prompted former WACH anchor Mike Woolfolk, now working for WXYZ in Detroit, to write a piece that was critical of the hire.

Hood had been with WACH since 2010. He started his career at Orange County Newschannel before working at KQTV in St. Joseph, MO. He has also worked in Las Vegas, NV, Los Angeles, CA, Denver, CO, and Memphis, TN.

Sinclair and WACH have not responded to emails asking if the two are still working for the station.
