WEWS/5’s Adam Shapiro Headed to NYC

Lose power and stay away from the keyboard for a couple of days…and what else can you miss?

The Plain Dealer’s Julie Washington reports that ABC affiliate WEWS/5 morning co-anchor Adam Shapiro is leaving the station, is headed out of Cleveland and is moving to New York. Apparently, he doesn’t have a gig in NYC at this time, and is just moving because he’s wanted to live there for a long time…near family members in the area, for one reason.

Shapiro exits “Good Morning Cleveland” on June 2nd, and has even already sold his house and two vintage cars he owns.

Local TV veteran Jack Marschall, who’s been flying in the station’s helicopter as “Air Marschall”, will fill in for Shapiro in the mornings until WEWS names a new “GMC” co-anchor. In addition to replacing him as a news anchor, Shapiro’s departure means WEWS will also have to find a new host this fall for “Academic Challenge”, the station’s long-running weekend high school quiz show…
