Popular evening TV news anchor Aristea Brady will be departing FOX 31 on July 1, citing a desire to be around her family more.
“This is the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, ever,” she said through tears on Monday’s newscast, announcing her plan to end a seven-year tenure at KDVR.
Brady will spend seven more weeks doing the 5, 9 and 10 p.m. news with Jeremy Hubbard.
“The only force that would pull me away from my dream job is my family,” Brady, who has 5-year-old twins, said. “I can’t miss one more bedtime story as an evening anchor.”
Hubbard posted about his “pal’s” move on his Twitter account, saying, “You’ll still be seeing her on-air occasionally.”
Brady was born and raised in Greenwood Village. She has worked in Lexington, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and for Denver’s 9News.
“Aristea has been a part of so many important moments in our community. While we will miss her daily reporting from the anchor desk, I’m excited that viewers can still connect with Aristea through her new lifestyle reports,” FOX31 vice president and general manager Byron Grandy said in a statement on FOX 31’s website.
The station says it will begin a nationwide search for an anchor. Erika Gonzalez will fill in in the meantime.
In his Tweet, Hubbard said Brady will be starting a new business, but no further details were immediately available. Brady has a website where you can see what she’s up to.
