Taryn Winter Brill, co-host of NECN’s new morning broadcast The Morning Show, has reportedly left the station. In a memo issued by NECN, Winter Brill left the regional news network to be closer to her family in New York. In part, the memo read, “With the loss of her father in December, the past few months have been very difficult for Taryn Winter Brill and her family.”
Taryn Winter Brill made her own remarks, telling The Boston Herald, “given the circumstances, I feel it is best to be there for my family in New York at this time. I am grateful to NECN for granting my request and thank them for the opportunity to have been a part of the new morning show. I wish the show great success in the months and years ahead.”
The Morning Show on NECN debuted on Monday, January 17th with Winter Brill and Steve Aveson as co-hosts. Winter Brill has been off the air since February 3rd. Since that time, fellow NECN newcomer Bridget Blythe has been filling in for her. Sometime in March, former Orlando morning anchor Erick Weber will join the program as a newsreader. As for Winter Brill, her replacement has not yet been named.
