Julia Yarbough Says Goodbye to NBC6 This Week

Categories: Media Watch
It seems WTVJ's Julia Yarbough really is packing up her gym bags. SFLTV reports that Tuesday will be the news anchor's last day after more than a decade at the station. Yarbough isn't leaving for a cushier gig at another station; she plans to get a master's degree in international business and a personal training certification.

After Dwight Lauderdale's retirement last year from WPLG, Yarbough became the most prominent African-American anchor in South Florida. Her exit might leave us without an African-American anchor in prime time at a major station for the first time in more than two decades.

She's also the latest in a string of high-profile talent to leave WTVJ. Joel Connable was fired earlier this year, and longtime on-air talent Kelly Craig left in June.
