This is a bitter sweet moment for me. I am very sad to leave behind a family here at WBTV. Every single person has welcomed me into the newsroom with open arms. Each person has taught me something along the way whether they literally sat down and verbalized it to me or simply displayed it in their character. With so much talent in one building I must say I am truly honored to be amongst such an amazing group of individuals. I will miss the entire crew- THANK YOU for everything!
The reason for my departure is to begin a new venture with Fox Charlotte. I have been offered a dream job as a meteorologist and reporter. More importantly, this position is aligned with opportunity for growth so I immediately blurted out, “Where do I sign” (lol). I am excited to enter unfamiliar territory for I am a lover of knowledge. I have officially started reading my first weather book titled, “The Atmosphere”.
In life there are times God will speak to us loudly and boldly. This was one of those instances. I knew something was about to change in my life because God was whispering to my heart! I did not have to question this move for this is where I’m supposed to be. I pray for strength and guidance during this move for my mission is to always show God’s work in all that I do.
At this time I am ready to give my all and embark on this new beginning. I hope to add to my already huge media family, from my lifelong friends at Entercom VA Beach to everyone at Clear Channel Charlotte, to WBTV and now to Fox Charlotte.
Thank YOU in advance for your continuous love and support.
