Jo Ann Allen Leaves WHYY

Next up for the "Morning Edition" host: movie writing.

After three nearly four years of helming the morning news at ’HYY, Jo Ann Allen dropped a low-key announcement on Twitter that today was her last in the gig.

Allen says she’s leaving to concentrate on spec movie scripts and writing a reaction to the Trayvon Martin case. Jennifer Lynn will take over the news chair for the time being.
