Weather Anchor Doug Allen Leaving WGAL

allen_daily recordDoug Allen, longtime weather anchor for WGAL is leaving the station, according to the York Daily Record.

The Daily Record reports the Lancaster, PA, NBC affiliate announced the move saying, “After 28 years at WGAL, Doug Allen will be leaving broadcasting behind to start his own business in the boating industry.”

Allen started at WGAL in 1985 as co-host of PM Magazine. He transitioned to the weather department in 1989.

“People talk about ‘living the dream,” Allen said. “And for a broadcaster such as myself, my time at Channel 8 has been just that. Very few people in this industry ever get the chance to enjoy a career so rewarding and long as mine has been with WGAL.’

WGAL Launching Newscast on Subchannel

Starting Monday, February 4, Lancaster, PA, NBC affiliate WGAL will begin airing a 10 p.m. newscast on its subchannel 8.2.

The newscast will feature anchors Ron Martin, Janelle Stelson and meteorologist Doug Allen weekdays.  The weekends will be anchored by Jim Sinkovitz and meteorologist Matthew Moore.

Lancaster Online spoke with John Baldwin from WGAL who said the 10 p.m. news will not be a duplicate of the main channel’s 11 p.m.

Baldwin didn’t say this, but the 10 p.m. newscast will compete directly with WPMT-TV Fox 43′s News at 10, which appears to be a return shot in response to other networks expanding their news coverage.

The 10 p.m. show can also be seen on Comcast channel 248, Blue Ridge cable channel 136, Kuhn Communications channel 68 and channel 460 on Verizon FiOS.
