Seattle Anchor Leaving The Business

KIRO Anchor Angela Russell says you can stick a fork in her....she's done.

After 5+ years anchoring the news at KIRO she is ready to move on to the next chapter in her life, a chapter that she will be writing as a writer.

This is what she posted to her fans on her Facebook page:


When I was a rookie reporter in Mobile, Alabama, I never imagined I would have the opportunity to work in Seattle, Washington; especially as the evening anchor! The experiences at KIRO 7 the last 5 ½ years have been surprising, amazing, and life changing. Now, I am ready to move on to my next adventure! At the end of the year, I will step away from TV News to pursue my passion for writing. It will also give me the opportunity to spend more time with my two young daughters. I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have been afforded at KIRO 7. I will miss my co-workers and the experience of connecting with many of you. Stay tuned! You may see me pop up on KIRO 7 for future projects. Also, I will stay in touch on social platforms and hopefully make some big “behind the scenes” moves in the years to come. Thank you so much for allowing me into your homes!
