Springfield’s WGGB Shakes Up Morning Team, Again

For the second time this year, WGGB is revamping its morning newscast.

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:
