And Orlando Reporter is leaving the station for "family reasons".....we've all heard that before. But, this time it really is the case.
Reporter Amanda Evans has decided to leave News 13 to care for her husband, Joe Clark.
"This is the hardest and easiest decision at the same time," Clark told the Orlando Sentinel. "Balancing doctor's appointments, chemo and working full time just wasn't working. News 13 has been so good to me through my husband's battle with cancer, but I know he needs me right now. I definitely hope this is not the end of my TV career. I love my job, but right now, I just love my family more."
In February, Evans revealed that Clark's cancer had returned after major surgery in October. He had been diagnosed with colon cancer, which spread to his peritoneum, the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity.
Evans has shared updates on the couple's Cocktails and Chemo blog.
News 13 announced her decision as well. "I wanted to let you all know that Amanda Evans will be leaving News 13 on May 2nd," Tim Geraghty, News 13's senior director of news, said in a staff memo. "Amanda has decided she needs to give her full attention to her family right now. Amanda has been with News 13 for almost five years. Please join me in wishing Amanda nothing but the best in the near future and beyond."
