WXYZ reporter Syma Chowdhry, who was also a fill-in weekend anchor, told viewers Sunday morning that she's leaving the station after five years.
"The pandemic has put different perspectives on life and I’m moving my family back to the East Coast because that’s where my family is," she said, according to an article by Julie Hinds in the Detroit Free Press.
The 40-year-old broadscaster, raised in Toms River, N.J., said she had "a great five years" and tells the Freep: "I love Detroit. I want to be an honorary Detroiter."
Her last day is Wednesday.
Syma will relocate from Wayne County with her husband Andy Zaremba, a news photographer and their two sons and a daughter.
The Temple University graduate previously worked in Philadelphia and New York.
