Don North, news director for WFLA-TV NewsChannel 8, has left the station, a spokeswoman for station owner Media General said.

Nancy Chafin, a spokeswoman for the Richmond, Va.-based company, would not discuss the circumstances of North’s departure, including whether he left voluntarily or was terminated.

North joined NewsChannel 8 in 2005 from Media General’s CBS affiliate in Wichita, Kan. NewsChannel 8 and The Tampa Tribune had been sister companies underneath Media General, but the companies parted when Media General sold the Tribune to Revolution Capital Group in October 2012.

NewsChannel 8 has begun seeking a replacement for North. Donna Reed, Media General’s vice president for content and a former Tribune news executive, will help the TV station with its transition, Chafin said.
