Signing off in Omaha

An Omaha Anchor is leaving the station to...say it with me......spend more time with her family.

Brandi Petersen, anchor and reporter for KETV in Omaha, announced Monday night that she was leaving the station.

Petersen, who has been at KETV for 15 years, said she is leaving at the end of the month to become director of communications for the Westide School District.

Petersen said on air and on her blog that she was leaving to be able to spend more time with her children.

"There will be another journalist, waiting and ready, to slide into that spot next to Rob to anchor our evening newscast every night," Petersen wrote, "but I am my boys’ ONLY MOTHER."
