Marcu leaves KKTV, Harding returns
This was KKTV/Channel 11 morning news anchor Jeff Marcu's last day at the station. He's leaving after seven years to pursue some business ventures, but will be filling in from time to time. Starting on Thursday, he'll be replaced by John Harding, who, interestingly, is the guy Marcu replaced back in 1999.
Harding was the morning anchor from 1997-1999, originally anchoring with Melissa Brown. He left for jobs in Little Rock, Ark., and then Tampa, Fla.
Marcu was known for his reporting as well as his anchoring - he won three Murrow awards in his time at the station. As I recall, we gave him "TV hottie" in the Best Of edition a couple years ago, too (and that was before his current GQ/John Edwards 'do).
Forgot to mention, KK put up a nice tribute to Jeff on their Web site - http://www.kktv.com/home/headlines/11883111.html
