Local 6 News anchor Lauren Rowe on Friday shared a message with viewers:
"To my co-workers and friends,
I am sending you this message because I'm going to be taking a break for awhile. I have suffered from depression for many years, and with the help of my doctors I have been able to manage it. Recently, it has become harder for me to deal with my depression. In consultation with my doctors, I have decided to step away and seek treatment. I know this is the right thing for me to do, and I appreciate your understanding and support. I will miss Local 6 and our viewers. I look forward to returning to work soon."
