Just when you think everything's in place . . . Justin Farmer leaving Daybreak

Belo8's Daybreak team is breaking up -- again.

Station management got the unexpected news Friday that co-anchor Justin Farmer will be joining WSB-TV in Atlanta after his contract expires in July.

"We expect he'll be here until July," Belo8 news director Michael Valentine said Friday. He declined further comment.

Earlier Friday, Farmer had welcomed Daybreak co-anchor Cynthia Izaguirre to her first day on the job. She's replacing Jackie Hyland, who left Belo8 at the end of the November "sweeps" and now is reporting for WCBS-TV in New York.

Farmer has ties to Atlanta. He previously was a sportscaster for CNN, whose world headquarters are in the city. And his father is Don Farmer, one of CNN's early anchors when the cable news network launched in 1980.
