Channel 7 reporter Kyla Igoe has given her notice and is leaving the station after more than five years as a backpack journalist.
Mike Nurse, who officially will be the station's general manager in two weeks, confirmed her departure. He said it was Igoe's decision to opt out of her contract "to focus on her family and to work with with her husband in his videography enterprise."
"We appreciate her efforts and wish her well in her new ventures," added Nurse.
A Buffalo State College graduate, Igoe is the daughter of former Channel 2 consumer reporter Mike Igoe. She could not be reached immediately for comment.
Nurse added the station will soon be announcing a variety of new additions that will include Igoe's replacement.
