Call it a year and out for John Henry Smith, former sports director for NBC-owned WVIT in Hartford, CT.

Smith’s abrupt departure comes just shy of a full 12 months at the station. He came on board last December.

The station wasted no time pulling down his bio on the website which now yields one of those “Page Not Found” notifications.

Prior to Hartford, Smith freelanced for News 12 .

He also worked for the late Al-Jazeera America.

He’s also done tours in the Bay Area, New Orleans, Raleigh, Syracuse, New York, and Miami over the course of a 16-year career.

Seemed kind of inevitable.
