WBZ Newsradio's owners have cut veteran anchor Rod Fritz, who has been reporting and broadcasting Boston news for some 40 years. In a memo to the staff, the station's assistant news director tersely writes:
We want to make you aware of a change here in the newsroom. Rod Fritz is moving on and will no longer anchor here at WBZ.
We thank Rod for his years of service and wish him all the best.
Part-time reporters also had their hours cut back.
Last month, the station ditched anchor Mary Blake.
