KNXV weekend anchor-reporter Kim Tobin had an offer to stay at the Phoenix ABC affiliate but says she is heading to Los Angeles instead.

“Despite a wonderful offer from my bosses to stay, my heart is calling me to L.A. and I’m going to listen. I’m working on some new opportunities out there and I’m ready for the journey,” she wrote in a Facebook post.

Tobin joined the station in 2015. She interned there in college.

“It was always a dream of mine to come home to Arizona to tell stories, and how lucky I was, to come back to the station where I interned in college!”

According to her station bio, Tobin worked in Oregon and New Mexico after college. She grew up in Northern Arizona.
