WKRN’s Dawn Davenport is leaving the Nashville ABC affiliate.
“I moved to Nashville almost 10 years ago thinking it would just be a quick stop as I looked to climb the career ladder, but this city stole my heart from day one and I never wanted to leave,” she said this morning on Good Morning Nashville.
Davenport, who was a part of News 2’s sports team for 6 years before moving to co-anchor Good Morning Nashville with Neil Orne, is moving to SEC Network and ESPN as a sideline reporter.
“When I made the switch from sports to morning news four years ago, I really got a chance to get to know our community and see first hand how great our viewers are,” she said. “They’re family to us. I feel blessed and honored to have had the chance to sit in this chair every morning.”
Her last day is tomorrow.
