ANCHOR LEAVES BECAUSE NEW DEAL WON’T HELP HER CAREER ADVANCE

After more than a decade hosting one of the most successful and well-known lifestyle shows in the New Haven/Hartford, Conn. market, CT Style anchor Teresa Dufour is going to leave.

In an email to Patch, she said WTNH management didn’t make her an offer she wanted.

“After a number of discussions and meetings with WTNH, the role they have offered me doesn’t align with my career goals or ambitions,” she said in an email. “The way people consume their media has changed quite a bit since I started at Channel 8, and I want to make sure I change and evolve with it.”

She hasn’t mentioned leaving on social media. And Dufour hasn’t said what she’ll do next.

The station put out this statement: “For the past 11 years, Teresa has been a valued member of the team at News 8. The station thanks her for all her hard work, and wishes her and her family nothing but the best in the future.”
