His last newscast is scheduled for July 31.

The South Beach club operator who orchestrated the "bar girls" scheme that fleeced former Philadelphia weatherman John Bolaris out of $43,000 and eventually cost him his job was sentenced to 12 years in prison today.
According the MIami Herald, operator Albert Takhalov cried as he was sentenced.

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" mastermind Rob McElhenney tweeted a photo confirming that "Game of Thrones" head honchos D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, announcing that the writing duio penned an episode of the long-running comedy for its upcoming season.
"Game of Thrones" is clearly very different than "It's Always Sunny," which will premiere its ninth season on the newly-created FXX channel in the fall. Here's hoping for a Tyrion Lannister-fuelled makeover of Paddy's Pub, or at least a Charlie-Hodor bromance.
McElhenney is a big "Game of Thrones" fan, recently interviewing the cast of the HBO megahit at an event sponsored by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in Hollywood.
A woman is suing Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, his bodyguard and Premier Luxury Rentals in the Court of Common Pleas.
The plaintiff, who goes by the name "Mary Roe" in the suit, claims on Dec. 18, 2012, McCoy's publicist invited her along with 14 other women to a party at a New York City nightclub, transported by a Premier Luxury Rentals party bus.
The complaint states McCoy allegedly started spraying guests with water. When Mary Roe protested, McCoy instructed his bodyguard, "Big John," to "get her."
Comedian Amy Schumer discussed Philly men with David Letterman last night, saying that our boys are both "meatheads" and looks-obsessed.
"Those Philly guys, they'll beat you to death with a sack of batteries but they get their eyebrows waxed," Schumer says, after telling a nice little anecdote about a Phillies-Mets game. Um, I don't know how many Philly guys she's met but I don't think we're hanging in the same social circles.
Then again, she is a Mets fan, so how can you trust her?
On the season finale of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother," viewers were finally shown the face of the woman Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) has been talking about for eight frickin' seasons.
She is Cherry Hill's own Cristin Miloti!
Milioti is a Cherry Hill High School East alum, graduating in 2003. Milioti's credits include "30 Rock," "The Good Wife," "Nurse Jackie" and her Tony-nominated role in "Once," based on the 2006 romantic weepy, where she played the main character of The Girl. She lost out to Audra McDonald in "Gershwin's Porgy and Bess," who if you're going to lose out to anyone, that's a good person to lose to.
"Parks and Recreation" VIP Nick Offerman is coming to the Tower Theater September 3, presented by WMMR's Preston and Steve. Tickets are $34.50 and go onsale May 17.
In previous live outtings, Offerman has riffed on his character, Ron Swanson, a meat-loving libertarian who hates Big Government, yet chooses to work in it (if only to take it down from the inside). He also love breakfast, brunettes and wood-working of any kind. Unlike "Parks and Rec's" Aziz Ansari, who recently filmed a comedy special at the Merriam last month, Offerman doesn't have roots as a stand-up. Pre-"Parks," he stuck to the theater, including working with Chicago's respected Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
Megan Mullally (that would "Will & Grace's" Karen), will serve as Offerman's supporting act, with her band Nancy & Beth, with Stephanie Hunt.
Lafayette Hill resident Terrence Howard is officially a single man after settling his divorce with Michelle Ghent. The settlement, obtained by TMZ, shows that Howard came out on top. He'll retain both houses in PA and his 25 bank accounts.
Ghent gets about $5,800 in spousal support per month for the next three years, a sum TMZ points out is not all that much considering the wealth of the "Red Tails" star.
Ghent and Howard started divorce proceedings in 2011, a scant year after they were married, with Ghent accusing Howard of domestic abuse, while Howard claimed Ghent was a racist.
