 So, could this be the start of the big changes forecast at WESH?

Lagniappe magazine in Mobile, Ala., reports that WPMI-NBC 15 anchor Scott Walker is leaving the city and heading to WESH as a new anchor. And from the story, it looks like he’s part of a huge exodus from the Alabama TV station.

Walker, whose bio has already been removed from the WPMI site, was named "best anchor" in the market by the Mobile Press Club. He had been at the station for seven years. Here he is saying goodbye to his viewers.

According to Lagniappe, "Morning show anchor Scott Walker, who has taken a position at WESH in Orlando …. was the last of the station’s weekday anchors remaining from last year. The last several months have seen a mass exodus from the station, including anchors [Peter] Albrecht, [Drexel] Gilbert, [Kim] McCrea, Walker, Sandra Shaw, meteorologist David Glenn and reporter Nicole Patrick."

The big question in O-Town, though, is what will Walker’s role be at WESH?
