KIVI 6 On Your Side announced today long-time anchor Michelle Edmonds will leave her full-time anchor role tomorrow.

She will remain with the station in a part-time role, reporting on education issues and working on community initiatives, according to a news release.

“This decision has been months in the making and comes only after much prayer and a few tears,” Edmonds said. “At this point in my life, my family needs to come first.  It has been my honor to work and live life alongside the most talented, dedicated and caring team I’ve ever encountered.”

Edmonds joined the station in 2004, making her one of the most-tenured journalists on the air in SW Idaho.
