ICYMI – Audrey Washington is leaving NBC CT.
Her final newscast was Friday. She doesn’t say where she’s going but in her most recent Facebook post hinted at “exciting” things to come.
We’ll keep an eye out.
After more than five years, Jeff Stoecker, a news anchor and member of NBC CT’s Troubleshooters team, is leaving the station. His last day is Wednesday.
The word went out to staff Sunday afternoon. No word on where he’s headed next, but management gave him a warm send off, thanked him for his work and wished him “nothing but the best” as he “pursues new opportunities.” We’ll keep you posted.
Before coming to Hartford, Jeff worked in Albany where his work included covering the prostitution scandal that forced the resignation of former Governor Eliot Spitzer.
NBC CT has confirmed reporter Seth Lemon has left the station. The word was sent in an email to staff without explanation.
Lemon’s previous experience includes reporting for News 4 in Washington, D.C. where he worked as a reporter trainee. He attended Howard University and interned at NBC News and CNN where he worked in “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer (italics added for urgency).
We’ll keep an eye out for where Seth lands next.

The political season is upon us (wait, you hadn’t noticed?) so the timing is good for NBC CT to launch a Sunday morning political interview program. “Decision 2014″ will air at 10 am as a lead-in to “Meet the Press”. Hosts will include Gerry Brooks, Todd Piro and George Coli. The show will run from now until Election Day. Kudos to the management of NBC CT, whose predecessors relegated Tom Monahan’s “Newsmakers” to 6 am and eventually put it to sleep. It’s great to see more on-air political discourse.
Former NBC 30 anchor Rob Morrison had a serious brush with the law this weekend. Morrison was arrested on Sunday, Feb. 17, on charges of second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct following a domestic violence incident with his wife, Ashley. Ashley also worked at NBC30 – she did a brief reporting stint at the station. The couple lives in Darien. Here’s a scene from happier times.
After working as a morning anchor at NBC 30, Rob went on to anchor/reporter duties at WNBC-TV. He appeared regularly on NBC’s Weekend Today and MSNBC. He then moved on to WCBS-TV where he anchors the morning and noon newscasts.
His wife, Ashley Morrison, served as an air anchor/reporter with Bloomberg television (BTV) from 2007-2009. She is currently an anchor for CBS Moneywatch.
