Sara Welch Leaves New Haven’s WTNH After 10 Years

Sara Welch, who for 10 years was a reporter and weekend anchor for New Haven’s WTNH, has left the station to move to California with her fiance.

Welch became engaged in June to Bob Vanech, a college acquaintance who she reconnected with three years ago after he spotted her anchoring on the New Haven NBC affiliate while visiting his family in Connecticut. Vanech is a Los Angeles resident.

“I really want to have a family,” Welch told the New Haven Register. “So I’ll be taking the plunge and driving across the country. But I’ll be back at some point.”

Welch began her career in television at WBKB in Alpena, MI. She has spent time in local television in a variety of different markets, including WGBA in Green Bay and WTEN in Albany. Her final broadcast in New Haven was last week.

John McLoughlin Leaving WTEN After 39 Years

Political reporter John McLoughlin is leaving WTEN after nearly four decades with the Albany ABC-affiliate.

McLoughlin joined WTEN in 1972 as a part-time political commentator and went on to become an important voice in New York’s capital city.  Covering governors from Nelson Rockefeller to Andrew Cuomo, McLoughlin loved his job and became known for his hard work and bluntness.

“How can a little fat guy like me get to do that sort of thing, a front-row seat, it’s fantastic and they pay you a little bit of money to do it,” McLoughlin told the Albany Times Union about his career covering New York politics.

McLoughlin, 68, still plans to cover politics, just not with WTEN.

“I still plan to work someplace, probably part time,” he informed the Times Union. “It’s as simple as that.”
