VIDEO: Erin Anthony's tearful goodbye from Fox 26 KRIV traffic beat

Fox 26 KRIV steals Michelle Merhar from 740 KTRH

After 14 great years, Fox 26 KRIV traffic reporter Erin Anthony announced she was leaving the television station Wednesday morning on air and Facebook. What are Houston's morning commuters to do?

I found this video online of her tearful goodbye. It was nice to see real emotion on a newscast for once. The crew gave her a nice send off too. (UPDATE 7/26/2010: Fox 26 replaces Erin Anthony)

According to her bio, Anthony was the assistant director of operations at Metro Networks/Westwood One and worked as a radio news and traffic anchor at radio stations like KPRC, KWWJ, KPTY and KMJQ.

You might not know that Anthony is married to former NBA Standout Purvis Short. She is the current President of Behind the Bench the National Basketball Wives Association. In 2007 she made travelled to South Africa with Habitat for Humanity, Feed the Children and Basketball Without Borders.

Good luck Erin. Please let us know what you are up to next. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
