Viewers are shocked to learn that KYW CBS 3 (Philly) Anchor Susan Barnett is leaving the station.

Barnett grew up in the Philly area and also said that anchoring the news in Philadelphia was a dream of hers.

Now, she's leaving. Her contract expired at the end of March and she hasn't been seen on the air.

"I have decided to not renew my contract with the stations at this time. I am incredibly thankful for having been a part of the CBS Philly family, but I feel that this is the right decision at this time," Barnett said in a statement.

Barnett joined the station 2006 and was bumped up to the main anchor gig in 2008.

It seems odd for someone to walk away from a main anchor job in Philly.

Barnet also wrote on her Facebook page "I wanted to tell you that I won't be returning to CBS3. This is not a decision that I expected to make, however it's the right one, for many reasons."

Her co-anchor Chris May let his Facebook fans also know that Barnett was leaving the station:
