After 14 years at KCBS-KCAL, weather anchor Jackie Johnson announced she’s leaving following the birth of her first child.

“It’s bittersweet time for me,” Johnson said. “I’ve been blessed to have had this amazing career with KCBS and KCAL. But right now, my priority is to stay at home and raise our baby girl. I have a new respect for mothering, as it is the hardest but most rewarding job. And I’m loving it!”

“It has been a pleasure to have Jackie as a member of our team for nearly 14 years. She is a talented broadcaster and an even finer person. We respect Jackie’s decision to make Bridgette her top priority,” Steve Mauldin, president and general manager of CBS 2 and KCAL 9, said.

Johnson has anchored he weather at 5, 6 and 11 p.m on CBS2 since 2010.
