By June 24, 2009 Journalism, KSDK No Comments

St. Louis — Deb Peterson reports that Rebeca Wu, reporter and anchor for Newschannel 5 is rumored to be leaving the station to take a job with the FBI. Wu has not answered inquiries, and news director Mike Shipley has no comment.

“There are some developments with Rebecca but I can’t go into the details. Call me back in a week.”

-Mike Shipley, News Director, KSDK.

In other Channel 5 news, KSDK has picked up another reporter. Ashley Larchin, niece of of  Deanne Lane, comes to KSDK from WLTX in Columbia, South Carolina, another station owned by Gannett. No word on when her first on-air date will be. Larchin was previously a production assistant at KSDK.

My Take:

KSDK is losing another good reporter/anchor. If Ms. Wu takes the job with the FBI, I wish her the best of luck.
