Friends, I have some personal news. I’m leaving Charlotte. I’m moving to Washington D.C. to work as the senior managing editor for WAMU.

The last year has been good to me. Charlotte has been good to me. I know my family has enjoyed it. And I’ve certainly enjoyed working at WFAE. We’ve had a lot of success. I couldn’t be more thankful for the staff and all the people in the community who’ve contributed to what has been a remarkable year of growth and friendship.

So this move is bittersweet. This is an opportunity I couldn’t pass up on and I’m excited about what lies ahead.

I’m thankful and blessed. And now I’m looking forward to working with the tremendously talented staff of WAMU and reconnecting with many of my friends who are in D.C.

I can’t wait.
