“When I left WABI, this was exactly the type of step I was looking for,” Coit told the Bangor Daily News. “I never expected to get a job this good. I was lucky enough to land it.

Coit’s two-year contract expires Thursday and there were contract discussions but, he said, “it is in my best interest to make the jump.
“I love this job. I love the people up here. It has been awesome,” said Coit, who turns 25 on December 23. “But it’s time to take the next step. I’m young and I have big goals. And I don’t have a personal connection here.”
He said he doesn’t have another job lined up as yet, but he wants to continue as a television sports anchor-reporter. “I’ve had a couple of opportunities come my way but they haven’t been what I’m looking for,” said Coit, a native of Plymouth, Mass. “I want to keep moving up. I’d like to find a job in a mid-major market. Not a big city but a bigger place (than Bangor).”
“This will be my first on-air gig and that’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” Coit told the Bangor Daily News. “I had a real nice opportunity with Fox in Boston but this is truly the direction I want to go.”
The 22-year-old replaces Prescott Rossi, who left recently to join Rochester’s WROC, at the CBS-affiliate. WABI news director Jim Morris, who selected Coit from a pool of 50 applicants, said Coit is “a good fit” for the station.
