A year after having her second child, Michele McClintick has announced she will leave Buffalo’s WIVB at the end of this month to spend more time with her family.
“With the second one, it became almost impossible to balance everything,” she told Buffalo media reporter Alan Pergament.
McClintick, who has been at the CBS affiliate for nine years, has been working on the evening newscasts in order to spend the day with her 3-year-old daughter and her 15-month-old son. “The night hours were just a little too difficult for the two little ones, and worse on me and everyone else in the household,” she said.
McClintick’s last day will be July 27. She follows in the footsteps of WIVB colleague Lisa Flynn, who left the station last year to spend more time with her family. “I’ve talked to Lisa a lot in the past year,” McClintick said. “She’s kind of known I’ve been thinking about it. She told me, ‘you will not regret it in the least.'”
