Update your media list: Leon Harris to leave WJLA

From DCRTV September 2:
Leon Harris To Leave 7 In October - 9/2 - Leon Harris (right) is leaving Sinclair's Channel 7/WJLA in October. He's been a top news anchor at the ABC affiliate 13 years, joining the station when it was owned by Allbritton. "We can't thank Leon enough for his service to our station and our community," says WJLA News Director Mitch Jacob. "He is a journalist of the highest caliber, and has been an asset in our newsroom, and he will be missed." Prior to arriving in Washington, Harris was known nationally for his 20 years at CNN's Atlanta headquarters, where he co-anchored "CNN Live Today" and "Prime News," and also hosted "CNN Presents" and "American Stories." More: Looks like a contract non-renewal. WTOP reports that Harris posted on Twitter that it was not his choice to leave the station: "13 great yrs at ABC7 are not enough, but will have to be. Thanks for the support, all! Not my choice, but it's now my challenge. Much love!".....
