Local Orlando TV Anchor Barbara West Signs Off on Eyewitness News

Long-time local news anchor Barbara West has just completed her last broadcast for WFTV Channel 9 Eyewitness News today.

Looking slightly teary-eyed, she signed off the noon broadcast with a short good-bye.

It was only a little over a week ago that West announced she was leaving the ABC-affiliate’s news desk. She has been with the Eyewitness News department since 1986.

No word on what her future plans may be, but we at CitySurfing Orlando wish her the best in whatever it is she chooses to do from here.
