Ever since Sharron Melton was made a KTRK abc13 field anchor in August of 2014, my readers thought the longtime morning anchor would be leaving the Disney/ABC Television Group station sooner than later.

Today that day has come.

In a post on Facebook, Melton announced her departure and broke her radio silence on the whole apparent "field anchor" demotion.

"Even as things changed, you still stayed around," Melton posted. "And I thank you for that."

Readers of my blog know that my post about Sharron Melton becoming a "field anchor" has become my number one blog post in the 10 years I've been writing here. That's quite a statement on her popularity considering it was just posted last year!

The San Antonio native came to Houston in 2007 from working as the weekend anchor at WSVN Miami. Before that, she was an anchor at WPMI Mobile, Alabama. She was also an anchor at KOBR Roswell, New Mexico. The award winning journalist got her start as a radio reporter for the Agriculture Communications Network in Texas.

The Texas A&M graduate also has a Master's degree in television communication from Eastern New Mexico University.

While in Houston, Melton has been very active in the community. Will she still be able to be involved in our community? We'll just have to wait and watch to see where she ends up next.

Melton was replaced at the morning anchor desk by then weekend morning anchor Samica Knight.
