John Muller Returns to WPIX, Scott Stanford Goes Back to Sports

photo_atm-john-muller-11-e1401767395558WPIX, Tribune’s CW affiliate in New York, has announced the return of John Muller as weeknight anchor.

Muller will join Tamsen Fadal for the 5:00  and 10:00 p.m. shows, a move that will see current anchor Scott Stanford return to sports.

Stanford, who was named lead sports anchor at WPIX with Muller’s return, made the switch from sports to news when he came to WPIX in September from WNBC. He was weekend sports anchor at the NBC owned station.

Muller first started at WPIX in 1999 before leaving in 2011 to work at ABC. He had been anchor of World News Now and America This Morning. He also filled in as news reader for Good Morning America. He starts June 23.

“WPIX11 continues to grow and invest in our team. John and Tamsen, along with Scott and Mr. G are an all-star anchor lineup with a meaningful connection to the audience,” WPIX news director Mark Effron said in a statement. “Our viewers have watched John grow up here on PIX11, I have been a longtime fan of his work and I’m delighted he is back at PIX11 where he belongs.”

Muller started his career at WTOC in Savannah, GA before moving on to WBBH in Fort Myers, FL, WFLA in Tampa and WNBC in New York.

Veteran Anchor John Muller Cut Loose at WPIX

WPIX morning anchor John Muller‘s contract has not been renewed after 12 years with the New York City CW affiliate, FishbowlNY reported today.

As we reported last week, WPIX recently hired Frances Rivera, who left Boston’s WHDH after ten years. Rivera will join WPIX as a morning anchor later this summer. WPIX has not renewed Muller’s contract, which was set to expire at the end of next month. Muller was not on the air yesterday and may already be done working, The New York Daily News reported today.

Muller is an original member of the WPIX morning team. He began as an anchor for  the 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. timeslot with Sukanya Krishnan, but was shifted to the 4:30 a.m. timeslot when Chris Burrous joined WPIX last year. Burros has since left WPIX; Rivera, who will start in August, is his replacement.
