Dust off your resumes and audition tapes as there are two job openings at Bangor, Maine ABC-TV affiliate WVII-TV after its two evening news anchors said adios at the end of the 6 PM newscast Tuesday night and surprised staff, management and viewers alike.

Management told local media they were on their way out the door anyway and have already received applications to fill the new openings.
