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.
