KUSI News Anchor Dan Plante Transplants to Phoenix
KUSI's animated morning news anchor, Dan Plante, surfaced in Phoenix after months of speculation that the news anchor had been fired.
In the wake of Plante's disappearance from the morning news show fans started a Facebook page, "Where is Dan Plante?"
Union Tribune columnist Tom Blair ruled Plante was MIA (missing in action) in a column in late June.
Now months later, Plante explains on his own Facebook page the reason for his absence.
"Apparently a lot of you have been wondering where I've gone and what I'm doing. The outpouring of interest has been wonderful , eye opening and appreciated."
"For those who care, I've followed my heart to the woman I'm going to marry and spend the rest of my life with. Despite the internet speculation, I leave KUSI on good terms, no drama, just life evolving. I look forward to the next adventure and look forward to seeing you all again."
