Dennis House, veteran news anchor at WFSB Channel 3, is leaving the station after nearly three decades. The anchor and WFSB jointly announced the departure in a statement on his website Tuesday night.
“Words cannot express how grateful I am to have served the great state of Connecticut as a journalist for 28 years at WFSB. The station has meant so much more to me than just a job,” House said.
“I met my wife here, became a father here and suffered the tremendous loss of Denise D’Ascenzo here. The special report that night was the most challenging moment of my career. Being half of the most successful and longest running anchor team in Connecticut television history was a great honor. What’s next? When nothing is certain anything is possible. I just hope my next chapter is as rewarding as this past one.”
House hinted at the move in a tweet earlier Tuesday, with a photo of him and his wife, WFSB anchor Kara Sundlun, holding hands against the backdrop of a sunrise. “First sunrise of September with @karasundlun!” he wrote. “New beginnings and new adventures.”
