Another shakeup is coming soon to Sacramento’s TV news scene: Morning anchor Paul Robins has announced plans to depart from Fox 40.

After a decade with the station, Robins’ tenure will end after 2018, he said at the end of Tuesday’s 5-10 a.m. broadcast.

The veteran anchor will become a faculty member at William Jessup University, which is launching a digital communication program, as Robins said in a Facebook post.

Robins has a long radio and TV résumé in the Sacramento area. He has reported for PBS’s “America’s Heartland,” a weekly TV program. He is also a mystery novelist, according to his website.

Robins is the latest in a series of departures or switch-ups of talent among the region’s four English-speaking TV news channels (Fox 40, ABC 10, CBS 13 and KCRA).

“I appreciate the bosses here letting me get the word out now, so that I don’t just disappear one day without warning and you never hear what happened to me!” the journalist wrote in Tuesday’s Facebook post.

Several changes are happening on the air at Sacramento television news stations. Here is a sample.
