Fox 29 News at 10 anchor Dave Huddleston's contract with the station will not be renewed, and his last day at the station is expected to be June 13, a station spokeswoman confirmed this afternoon. He joined Fox 29 in June 2002. Fox 29 VP/GM Mike Renda says "We appreciate Dave's many contributions to WTXF during his time with Fox 29 News." We hear a search is underway for Huddleston's replacement but that in the meantime, anchor Dawn Stensland may be teamed with various Fox faces. A call to Huddleston was not immediately returned this afternoon.

UPDATE: Huddleston just got back to us to say that he is "clearly disappointed," with Fox 29's decision to not renew his contract, but says there is new management and they want to do what they want to do. The anchor, who turns 44 tomorrow,  and wife Tracey and their two children "fell in love with Philadelphia," and he hopes to stay in the area, if that's possible. Huddleston and agent Henry Reisch however will explore options nationally as well. The family who live in Glen Mills, came here from Minneapolis in 2002. Huddleston was raised in Seattle.
