“For several years, I’ve considered returning to local television. It’s been a terrific run at CBS, but I miss the pulse of a local newsroom, and I miss being a part of a community, having grown up in the Midwest. But I wasn’t going anywhere just yet. Cleveland reminds me a lot of the city where I grew up, and I’m excited to bring my family there because I think we’ll have a wonderful time.”
