Long rumored, now nearly done-deal status, Jodi Applegate has reportedly been released from her contract at News 12 Long Island so she can land an anchor gig at NYC's WPIX.

Richard Huff has the details in today's New York Daily News, saying Applegate, who was co-anchor of WNYW/NY's Good Day NY when I toiled the early morning hours on that show, will depart LIRR-ville October 1st.

As Huff describes the next steps, "Applegate's departure from News 12 and arrival at Ch. 11 is expected to start a series of changes, specifically for current 10 p.m. anchors Jim Watkins and Kaity Tong.

As previously reported, Applegate is expected to be hired by Ch. 11 to anchor the 10 p.m. newscasts solo."
