Brett Collar Gone from Fox 47/WILX

Post by gotigers » Sun May 10, 2020 2:45 pm

WILX seems to have unceremoniously let go of Brett Collar, the weeknight meteorologist for their Fox 47 newscasts. With the COVID pandemic, they've done some shuffling with the on-air talent, so I didn't realize he was actually gone until I noticed him missing from the WILX website today. Looking at his Facebook page, it appears he was off for a while in quarantine because his wife was sick, he came back in early April (but was switched to weekends), and then he was gone. He replied to comments asking why with "the station chose to move in a different direction."

Justin Bradford will take over the evening WSYM spot starting on Monday, May 18. He was previously the weekend guy. New weekend weather guy is Caleb Meute from Vermont. He worked on Mount Washington and filled in at WCAX.

The person who needs to go is Sarah Swistak. The worst Lansing TV media “personality”.
