Joy Robertson Says Goodbye to KOLR/KOZL

June 22, 2012

DATELINE: Springfield, MO-

- After 15 years working with KOLR10 and KOZL, Joy Robertson is saying goodbye.

Her last night was Thursday, and co-anchor David Oliver paid tribute to Joy's years of community reporting (see video above).

"I wanted to capture the essence and quality of her amazing storytelling that our viewers enjoyed and trusted for all those years," says David. "When I learned that Joy would be leaving to pursue other opportunities, my heart sank. Not only were we co-anchors for seven years, but we became the best of friends. We often joked that we wished our viewers could listen in on all our conversations during commercial breaks through the years. I wish her all the best in her new endeavors."

Joy will be staying in Springfield, and you'll likely see her out and about!

"Here's to 15 of the best years of my life!" she says. "Off to a new adventure! Eager to find out what it is. See you around the Ozarks."
