Ashley McNamee is leaving Peoria, IL, NBC affiliate WEEK.
“It is with an extremely heavy heart I confirm tonight will be my last night with News 25,” McNamee wrote on her facebook page today. “I have accepted a wonderful opportunity in Denver and I will be moving there later this month.”
In January, McNamee’s supporters started a petition called “WEEK News 25 and Granite Broadcasting: Put Ashley McNamee back on the air!” after she was moved from the 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. shows to the 10:00 p.m.
The Peoria Journal Star reported McNamee announced her resignation Friday.
