The "blonding" at KARE continues. Hope she reappears at KMSP or KSTP after her maternity leave.

If I remember a story from several months ago, I think Amy and husband, Chris Dowling live out of state. She may be gone for good.

She lives on the east coast -- she's been flying back on the weekends for like a year. Now that she has a baby, I can see where that would get old, for both employee and employer.

I wish Mike Pomeranz could have a baby, live on the east coast and move! He has got to go! I can't watch when he's on. Head of hair but nothing between the ears.

I'll watch their weather when Belinda Jensen's on.

And Diana's getting to be a snit. They had a female guest on the other day and a near empty soft-sided bag being used to demo items soundlessly dropped backwards and Diane pretty much "dismissed" the guest. Didn't even say thank you. The poor guest was just in Diana's way.

She'll be missed: I'm just grateful when I witness an anchor or reporter in this podunk market without some godawful speech impediment, fsuch as a lifsp. Hey, Frankie V.: it's, 'police', not ,'pleefs'.

Amy is going to be missed. But I can understand how difficult it is for her as her husband is living out east and I believe that were they had the baby. So I am not surprised that she is leaving. I wish her well in her future.

didn't the article say she HAD the baby. I don't know why people want to do this anyway unless they want to get away from home. Must be spendy too, does she have a place here too.

That's a shame...she made the weekend crew! I refuse to watch Kupchella! She is the one reason I even tuned into KARE for my news on the weekends! Hard to believe KARE would place that type of demand on her! Family first is 100% the right call. Good luck to Amy, and I hope we see her again on our local stations somewhere down the road!
