I'm stepping aside from Great Day Live on WHAS11. I will continue to do limited on air appearances on WHAS11 going forward but the daily grind of GDL ends now. Angie Fenton will take over as sole anchor of the show. My daily WHAS Radio show will continue every weekday from 3-6 PM.

Is radio dead? Is TV dead? Nope. But there is a reframing of information flow. A recent poll lists broadcasting as one of today's worst career choices.

I love my Great Day Live teammates. Left to right, Laura Rogers, me, Rachel Platt, and Angie Fenton are all strong women with delightfully humorous personalities. Each one is a treasure in my life. Our weekday morning magazine show has been a joyous ride for the past three years. No changes are expected as we roll into our fourth year.
