CBS46 anchor/reporter Alicia Roberts officially left the station last month without explanation. She was there three years.

Deborah Collura, general manager, confirmed her departure. “We wish her all the best in the future,” she said.

Roberts has not posted any comment about the job change or her future plans on social media. She had previously worked at TV stations in Chicago and Cleveland.

Reporter Brittany Miller also left the station earlier this month after nearly six years at the station. Collura said she’s taking a job closer to her home in Connecticut. “We’re going to miss her greatly,” Collura said.

Collura said she expects both jobs to be filled internally.

Jason Pullman, who spent a decade as morning host at 94.9/The Bull until early last year, had a short-lived morning host gig at a Chicago country radio station US99.

He has now moved to Dallas to become afternoon host of country station 99.5 The Wolf, owned by Atlanta-based Cumulus Media. He has been promised work in other markets as well.

Pullman wrote on Instagram: “I’m beyond excited to do what I love to do, not only in Dallas, but in other cities that I love, as well. I will be live & local in the other markets to be announced soon. I can’t wait to talk/see you once our world gets back to some sense of normalcy. It’ll be a lot of traveling, but well worth it.”
