I knew saying goodbye would be hard but didn’t think it’d be THIS hard. Thanking my colleagues for the wonderful gestures and goodbyes. Philly, you were everything I could’ve asked for and more. The last 3.5 years you welcomed me into your homes everyday and for so many major events. We welcomed Pope Francis here, hosted the DNC, watched the Eagles win their first Super Bowl and cheered on Villanova as they won two more championships. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege but tomorrow/Wednesday will be last day at CBS 3. I am so excited to announce beginning in late March, you can watch me on @cnbc :) While I will miss my hometown and certainly the viewers, I am thrilled for this new adventure ! Thanks for all the love and support ❤️
