Exodus at Toledo’s WTOL: News Director, Anchor, Meteorologist All Leaving

News director Andi Roman (right) is leaving WTOL after more than a decade with the station, and her departure comes as two other high-profile members of the CBS-affiliate’s news team are set to exit.

Morning anchor and reporter Lauren Lowrey, who joined WTOL in 2008, is leaving to join Indianapolis’s WISH, and morning meteorologist Mike Stone, a native of New Jersey, has decided to return to the east coast to be closer to his family (although it’s been reported that WTOL was asking him to take a significant pay cut).

Family is also the reason that Roman gave for her departure. The mother of two teenage sons, Roman tells the Toledo Blade that she wants to “able to spend more time with them.”

WTOL is currently searching for Roman’s replacement. Her last day is set for June 6th.

Melissa Voetsch, who anchors WTOL’s 9-10 a.m. morning show, will expand her a.m. hours and replace Lowrey on the early morning anchor desk.
