WATERLOO | KWWL morning co-anchor Natasha Chughtai and the station have parted ways and a search is on for a new morning anchor on "Today in Iowa."
Chughtai has been with KWWL since October 2011.
A reason for her departure was not stated. She was on the air Tuesday morning. KWWL officials confirmed Wednesday she is no longer with the station. Co-anchor Jason Carter did the anchoring duties alone Wednesday morning.
Chughtai came to the station after working as a television reporter in Anchorage, Alaska, and Eugene, Ore.
Dan Schillinger, KWWL news director, said a search is underway for a new co-anchor.
"There is no timetable, but we hope to have someone hired as quickly as possible," he said.
