Michelle Merhar to leave FOX 26

Michelle Merhar to leave FOX 26 KRIV to become a stay at home mom

Michelle Merhar

Six years ago, I blogged that 740 KTRH reporter Michelle Merhar was moving to the traffic screen at FOX 26 KRIV. This week, we learn that Merhar is leaving the business to become a stay at home mom as she posted on Facebook:

Today marks the beginning of a bittersweet week for me. Thursday the 22nd will be my last day at FOX. My heart is so heavy and sad to not start my day (in person) with incredible friends, co-workers and viewers AKA our "FOX Family". The last 7 years have flown by -- full of fond memories, a lot of learning and very early hours. From now on, I will be a stay-at-home Mom! I am really looking forward to having more time with our family, but sad to not be a part of our morning news anymore. Just wanted to thank y'all for being so supportive over the last few years and for welcoming me into your home everyday.

From traffic anchor Merhar later added morning anchor duties in 2014.
