Annie Szatkowski Leaving Fox 17

Post by Localnewsisdead » Sat Apr 03, 2021 5:50 pm

Long time Fox 17 anchor/reporter Annie Szatkowski is leaving the station.

Here is her facebook post announcing her departure:

💙The Carolinas are calling 💙
After more than 10 years of Midwest winters, it’s time for us to make our home somewhere where temps below zero aren’t a thing. 🙌🏼
Starting in May, I’ll be joining the FOX 46 team in Charlotte, NC as their newest anchor/reporter. ✨
While I will NOT miss lake effect snow, “Michigan Lefts,” and MSU fans (sorry)... I WILL miss this amazing West Michigan community and my #FOXFam so very much.
My last day at FOX 17 will be April 23rd... so in the meantime, I’ll be over here soaking up this entire last month 💕
PS: despite his face, Carver is also very excited... he was just SUPER focused on the treat behind the camera 😂

Congrats Annie on moving to Charlotte NC and joining WJZY Fox46 all the best as well. I was surprised that Fox sold it to Nexstar for Seattle and Milwaukee since Fox likes to be in NFC NFL markets the Panthers weren't a big draw for them?

Go Pistons, Let's Go Redwings.

Last time I checked, Fox 46 had low ratings for its news product. I mean really, really, REALLY low ratings. Did not realize FOX sold it! I can see why they did, though, if they received Seattle in return!

WSOC-TV (channel 9) and WBTV (channel 3) are the stations probably 80 percent of that market's viewers watch for news.

Tegna's WCNC-TV, a former CW (and longtime former FOX affiliate) called WCCB, and WJZY pick up the scraps.

Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)
