Serese Cole Says Goodbye

By  | 

Before I say good night to you - for the final time, I just wanted to take a minute and say a few words.

My time here at 10/11 has given me some great opportunities:
to sit down with state and city leaders, moderate debates, host my fair share of parades, dance, more than once, for a number of worthy causes and work with some amazing organizations, including Lighthouse.

I've also had the chance to interview and meet some wonderful people - and to deliver the news to you - morning and night.

Many of you have been watching me from the very beginning, you may remember the proposal on the morning show, the birth of both of my boys and everything in between.

I want you to know that i will never forget my time here. This is a great place to live and work.

In the's come down to this. I'm a mom. While I love what I do, and I love the people I work with, I love my family, too.

So, I'm taking a job as a morning anchor with one of our sister stations - which will allow me to spend my evenings and my weekends with my family.

I want to say a special thank you to the man who hired me, Randy Lube. the woman who promoted me, Lisa Guill, our General Manager Jason Effinger who allowed me to take this opportunity.

I would like to thank everyone I've worked with along the way including the entire news team and my longtime co-anchor, Jon Vanderford - who was more than just a co-worker but a friend. My first partner in crime - Brad Anderson...and of course Ken Siemek.

To you the viewers, thank you for inviting me into your homes
and into your hearts - it has been a privilege.
