San Antonio Reporter Leila Walsh Leaving TV News

By Andrew Gauthier Comment

Leila Walsh, a popular reporter for San Antonio’s WOAI, has decided to leave the world of TV news.

“The end of 2010 marks the end of my time at WOAI. I’ve accepted a job as a senior writer for the Houston ISD. Thanks SA for 5 great years!” Walsh announced via Twitter on Monday.

Walsh is set to become a senior writer for the Houston School District.  The move will allow her to be closer to her boyfriend Wes Sewell, a photojournalist for Houston ABC-affiliate KTRK, notes San Antonio Express-News.

Walsh joined NBC-affiliate WOAI in 2005 after working for seven years in Syracuse, most notably as a general assignment reporter for WSYR.

“I am very grateful for the past five years in San Antonio,” Walsh wrote on her Facebook page. “My life is filled with lessons and inspiration from the people I met here. I will carry that with me on this next journey and for years to come.”
