Fox29 confirmed today longtime rumors that nighttime coanchor Dave Huddleston's contract would not be renewed and that his last day on the air will be June 13.

Huddleston, who turns 44 tomorrow, began in June 2002 after nine years in Minneapolis.

The station said it is looking for his replacement.

Fox29 insiders say that more shake-ups are expected; the station is considering new newscasts at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

"We appreciate Dave's many contributions to WTXF during his time with FOX 29 News," general manager Mike Renda said in a statement.
