After 16 years at WOAI Anchor Jacqueline Ortiz is leaving to....say it with me....spend more time with her family.
“It was her decision,” Blaise Labbe, director of news for WOAI/KABB, said. “She wanted to spend more time with her family. Before she signed her last contract, she had said her husband wanted her to be home more with her kids — a son, 6, and daughter, 9 — but she decided to stay on the job.”
“I’ll miss the story-telling and the advocacy — being the voice of so many people,” Qritz said to the San Antonio Express News It also will be difficult to leave behind “my teammates,” she said.
Her last day on air is July 13th.
