Morning Anchor Kerri Furey Out at WAVY

Kerri Furey morning anchor for WAVY announced today she’s leaving the Hampton Roads NBC affiliate at the end of the week.

“I just want to say I’m very grateful for the 15 years that I’ve had here at WAVY-TV,” Furey said on air this morning.  “I don’t want to be all alone on an MCU,” she then told the director.  “Get my friends back in the shot!” she said while motioning to her fellow anchors, Don Roberts, Cheryl Tan and meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler.

The station also posted a goodbye to Furey on the twitter account of its “The Hampton Roads Show”,

“Kerri announced this morning that this is her last week at WAVY! She is slowing down to spend more time with her family. We will miss her!!”

Furey started in broadcasting as an enlisted sailor in the Navy.

Starting Next Week, WAVY Morning Newscast Will Begin at 4:30 a.m.

Morning show staffers at WAVY, the NBC-affiliate in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, will have to set their alarms a little earlier next week when the station shifts its morning newscast to a 4:30 a.m. start time.

“More and more viewers are waking up early to begin their day in Hampton Roads,” WAVY general manager Doug Davis said. “WAVY News 10 Today now begins at 4:30 a.m. every weekday to bring viewers the latest overnight news and all the weather and traffic they need for the day ahead.”

The newscast will feature the same talent: co-anchors Kerri Furey and Don Roberts, meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler and traffic reporter Cheryl Tan. The expanded morning show will compete with a 4:30 a.m. newscast on ABC-affilate WVEC.
