Mark Allen Retiring From WTHI in Terre Haute

Mark Allen is retiring from WTHI, the Fox and CBS affiliate in Terre Haute, Ind. He has worked at the station since 1990, anchoring the 6, 10 and 11 p.m. newscasts.

“They (WTHI-TV) take the business so seriously and I have really enjoyed the fact that they are involved in the community,” Allen told The Terre Haute Tribune-Star. “That is not always the case, especially for TV stations.”

Also retiring from WTHI is local sales manager Jim Swander. WTHI honored the pair with a party Thursday night.

The Tribune-Star reports Mike Cleff, an anchor at WLFI in West Layfayette, Ind., will take Allen’s place at the anchor desk.
