For Jackie Ward’s Last Day, They Gave Her a Box of Rice-A-Roni

WCSH morning anchor Jackie Ward signed off from the Portland, Maine NBC affiliate this morning.

Ward told viewers last week she was moving to San Francisco with her wife. “Out there I will continue to tell meaningful stories but in a non-traditional news way,” Ward wrote on her facebook page. “To start this new storytelling venture, I’m releasing a web series with a Portland, ME based multimedia production company in July. Stay tuned for details!”

Ward started at WCSH in January 2010. Her fellow anchors gave her a box of Rice-A-Roni, which every Bay Area resident knows is the San Francisco treat.
