Jessica Schmidt did her last show for Evansville, Ind. NBC affiliate WFIE Saturday night.

“She’s leaving us for a station in Cincinnati. Our loss is truly their gain,” Brandon Bartlett wrote on his Facebook page.

“I will be a reporter and anchor at FOX 19 Now in Cincinnati, Ohio,” Schmidt wrote on her Facebook page. “It has always been a goal of mine to work in the very city where I was born and raised and grew up watching and loving the news.”


Schmidt bid viewers a tearful goodbye during Saturday’s late newscast.
