Meredith TerHaar Leaves WZZM-13 After 20 Years
Over the years, she has become a part of your family and everyday routine while bringing you the news you need to know every single day.
After 20 years of local news in the West Michigan area, morning news anchor, Meredith TerHarr announced that she will be leaving 13 ON YOUR SIDE.
WZZM-13 announced that TerHaar's last day will be this Friday, January 6th.
In TerHaar's goodbye Facebook post, she gave her appreciation for the team that she worked with for 20 years.
I have loved my role as the weekday morning news anchor and I'm so grateful for this incredible team, both on-air and all the talented producers, photographers, and production staff making it happen behind the scenes! I'm so thankful for this wonderful season of working alongside them to bring you stories that matter to our community.
Meredith's career started at 13 ON YOUR SIDE as the morning show producer once she was in her final semester at Hope College.
After that, she and her husband moved to Panama City Beach, Florida where she became the 5 p.m. news producer, anchor, and 10 p.m. reporter.
Thankfully for us, Meredith moved back to West Michigan to become the weekend morning news anchor in 2014 until she was promoted to weekday morning news anchor around the start of the pandemic in 2020.
