News director Larry Perrret declined to comment, but I hear a replacement for Light is coming soon so the musical chairs may finally be coming to an end.
Light, who last worked at a Phoenix TV station, was one of the last major hires of the previous regime.
UPDATE on July 1, 2020: Light, who joined 10TV in Columbus, Ohio in 2016, said on Facebook he resigned with his final newscast on June 30. Here is what he wrote, in part:
This decision to end my broadcast career was 100% my call, on my timeline and the backstory is very simple: the media has changed more in the last 12 years (since the Great Recession) than it did in the previous 50. Since 2008/09, it's been tough on EVERY member of media with massive budget cuts, a 'do more with less' mentality plus the hyper partisanship that's led to the media being labeled an 'enemy of the state' and 'fake'. If you believe me or my any of my colleagues are either, please unfriend me. Now that I'm an ex-journalist, I can be that blunt with my own opinion since everyone else has theirs. I'm so proud of all my media brethren for keeping the world informed with data and science in this pandemic PLUS countless media outlets like 10TV - WBNS showcasing the human spirit, love and compassion of people helping people in these trying times. As for what's next, that's the other part of the backstory. An opportunity arose in December, it took 7 months to come together and now it's go time. I'm headed to the world of consulting with a focus on strategic communications, media relations, community advocacy and video production.
