Tony and Cindy were anchors for one of ABC’s affiliate that was located in Bangor, Maine. Their last words on live TV were about how much they loved every moment they had as TV news anchors. They decided to leave together and did not further elaborate to the viewers on why they decided to do so. They just said: “Some recent developments have come to our attention, though, and departing together is the best alternative.”
A local newspaper got the scoop on why the two left the news station. Bangor Daily News details how Cindy Michaels thought ABC7’s WVII affiliate had problems in upper management. She told the newspaper: “It’s a culmination of ongoing occurrences that took place the last several years and basically involved upper-management practices that we both strongly disagreed with”.
