WCBS and reporter Derricke Dennis have parted ways. The lead 11 p.m. correspondent confirms to Tuned In that he is no longer employed by Channel 2. While Dennis would not elaborate about the departure, sources say this was a case of station management choosing not to renew his contract.
Dennis, who left the station at the end of July, spent three years at WCBS.
“I enjoyed my time at WCBS,” Dennis tells Tuned In. “I loved telling the stories across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, and plan to do it again very soon.”
He covered the biggest stories during his time at WCBS. But he didn’t shy away from the bizarre. One such example took place last year, when he interviewed Patricia Krentcil, a.k.a. “The Tanning Mom.”
Before landing in New York, Dennis had a six-year stint as a reporter at WDIV in Detroit. He honed his craft in Richmond, Virginia. The Garden State native also worked at News 12 New Jersey.
