West Michigan: Newsmakers Nov. 15, 2009




Grand Rapids Press:

Tracy Forner will leave his morning anchor duties at WXMI-TV (Channel 17) to head back to Indianapolis. His last day will be Nov. 25. Forner joined Fox 17 in August 2008 after a six-year stint at the Fox affiliate in Indianapolis. Before that, he worked at WZZM-TV (Channel 13), WLHT-FM (95.7) and WLAV-FM (96.9). "It's a simple matter of not wanting to be away from my family anymore," said Forner, whose wife, Elizabeth, and three young children still live in the Indianapolis area. "As hard as we tried to sell our home and find comparable work for my wife here, it wasn't happening. "We were fully committed to coming back and being a part of West Michigan again. Now my only focus is for my family to no longer be apart. There will always be opportunities for me to work, but my children only grow up once, and I refuse to miss any more of that." WXMI news director Tim Dye is looking for a replacement for Forner, he said... WXMI-TV morning anchor Tracy Forner returns home to Indianapolis (Sun, 11/15)
