WBFF anchorman Jeff Barnd will be leaving the station around Dec. 1 for Boston, where he will be first-string anchor at WLVI, an independent station.
"It's been a great ride, and taking this Boston gig has been one of the toughest decisions I ever had to make," Barnd said Thursday.
He has been the top anchorman at WBFF (Channel 45) since 1991, when the local Fox affiliate started doing news.
Barnd won a local Emmy last year.
"Jeff has done a great job for us, and I'm happy for him, because this is a great opportunity for him. But I'm going to miss him," said Joe DeFeo, the news director at WBFF.
