George Mallet out as anchor at TMJ4

Less than two years after returning to the station, George Mallet is out as news anchor at WTMJ-TV.

The newscaster confirmed to OnMilwaukee that he was let go by the channel Friday.

"I remain very happy to be back in Milwaukee and am thankful for the opportunity I had to work at TMJ4," Mallet told OnMilwaukee.

Mallet returned to the TMJ4 news desk in 2016, joining the weeknight evening team after longtime anchor Mike Jacobs retired a year earlier and co-anchoring the 10 p.m. news alongside Carole Meekins.

Mallet had previously worked at the station from 2007 until 2010 before departing for another TV job in Vermont.

Today's news comes on the heels of Janet Hundley announcing her immediate resignation as the station's news director in late December. The channel has yet to announce her replacement.

OnMilwaukee reached out to TMJ management for comment but did not receive a response at time of publication.
