•KLAQ Morning Show co-host Teresa Provencio is leaving the station to focus on her family, station officials confirmed earlier this week.
Provencio's last day is today.
KLAQ operations manager Kevin Vargas said Provencio is leaving the station on amicable terms. Sources close to the station have told the El Paso Times there are rumors Provencio was forced out, but Vargas stressed it was Provencio who made the decision to leave.
UPDATE (10:33 a.m.): Provencio posted the following onto her Facebook page after this morning's announcement.
"In case you missed the announcement on the show this morning, today is my last day with the KLAQ Morning Show. The show is going in a different direction to appeal to a younger audience so I have been asked to step down. I want to thank the listeners for their support over the past 12 years. I will miss our mornings together!"
•KFOX recently lost two reporters to marketing jobs.
Late last year, reporter Martina Valverde left the station and is now working as the director of communications for Pediamed Night Clinics. And last week, traffic reporter Kandolite Flores announced she was leaving the station to become the volunteer and communications coordinator for the Humane Society of El Paso.
Just this week, two new reporter bios for Geoff Tyler and Bill Melugin were added to KFOX's website. However, no photos have been posted as of yet.
KFOX also made the surprising announcement last month that former KVIA reporter and anchor Shelton Dodson would be joining the station as the co-ancher for the station's morning news program. He joins Stephanie Guadian at the anchor desk and replaces former co-ancher Bill Young.
