Apr 30, 2015  •  Post A Comment

An anchor who has been a part of a series of major entertainment newsmagazine shows has stepped down from her weekend anchor job on “ET.”

B&C reports that Brooke Anderson, who has been working as weekend anchor and correspondent on the CBS TV Distribution magazine show, is giving up the post to move to the East Coast with her family. Staffers learned of the move in a memo Tuesday, the report notes.

In a statement, “ET” executive producer Brad Bessey said: “Brooke is a brilliant talent in addition to being a committed wife and loving mother. And, while we will miss her tremendously as a permanent member of our team, we respect her for her priorities — family first,”

In addition to “ET,” Anderson has been a part of shows including “The Insider” and HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight,”

“ET” recently hired actor Cameron Mathison — known for his role as Ryan Lavery on “All My Children” — as a weekend co-anchor and correspondent.
