What Happened to WHAS11 Morning News Anchors?

It’s been a little over a year since WHAS11 morning news anchors Meghan Klair and Drew Douglas left the station. And viewers are still wondering what happened to them.

Checkout this video:


It was early morning on January 18th when long time WHAS11 viewers awoke to find two new anchors sitting in the WHAS11 morning news anchor chairs.

For some, it was a jarring change. For others, it was simply the end of an era.

But for those who have been following the story, the question isn’t so much “what happened?” but “why now?”

The answer to that question can be found in a lawsuit filed by former WHAS11 news anchor Jennifer Kraus.

Where are they now?

Since the 1980s, WHAS11 has been a trusted source for news in the Louisville, Kentucky area. For many years, the morning news team was made up of anchors Carolyn Callahan and Scott Reynolds. In recent years, however, both anchors have left the station.

Callahan left WHAS11 in 2017 after more than 30 years with the station. She now works as a real estate agent. Reynolds left the station in 2019 and is now retired.

What happened?

Two of the most veteran and respected morning news anchors in Louisville are no longer with WHAS11. Carol Williams retired in early December after 35 years with the station, while Scott Reynolds announced his departure on Tuesday night, effective immediately.

Reynolds had been with WHAS11 for 19 years, serving as morning co-anchor for the past decade. He was let go due to “budgetary considerations,” according to a statement from station management.

Williams’ retirement was voluntary and she plans to spend more time with her family. She joined WHAS11 in 1982, co-anchoring the morning news for 25 years before moving to the 6 p.m. newscast in 2007.

The loss of these two experienced anchors leaves a big void in Louisville’s news landscape, and it will be interesting to see how WHAS11 fills their shoes in the coming weeks and months.


It seems that the WHAS11 morning news anchors have left the station. As of now, there is no word on where they have gone or what they are doing. We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
