Morning TV in West Michigan is about to change. Brody Carter and Alyssa Hearin have announced they are leaving the station.

Brody has been with Fox 17 since 2014 when he was hired as a reporter. He worked his way up to the anchor desk where he has presented the morning news alongside Alyssa Hearin.

Brody's statement on the Fox 17 web-site says,

"I wouldn't be the man I am today without the people who invested in me at FOX 17. I will miss the energy and comradery of our team, and the wonderful city of Grand Rapids I've called home for nearly seven years. I look forward to new opportunities outside of Michigan and thank our viewers for their love and support."

Alyssa joined FOX 17 as morning anchor and reporter in 2016. During her time at FOX 17, she was recognized by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters, earning her an award for best community initiative.

Alyssa's statement says,

"How lucky I am to have gotten the opportunity to live my dream job and bring that chapter to a close here at FOX17. A place where my co-workers quickly became family (literally) and an environment that has allowed me to be myself, learn new things, connect with our community and make some amazing memories both on and off air. At this point in my life however, it’s time for me to challenge myself once again and take on new goals and aspirations. I’m combining my passion for both science and communications and diving into the medical field. I’m excited for the new opportunities it will bring.”

Brody’s last day at the anchor desk will be July 6, and Alyssa’s last day is June 25.
