After 13 years at WKMG-TV Local 6, Lauren Rowe has decided to step away from the anchor desk, effective immediately.

“I have made the difficult but necessary decision to focus my full attention on my health and family," Lauren said.  "The outpouring of support I have received from all of you has been heartfelt and greatly appreciated, and I will truly miss the privilege you have afforded me by inviting me into your homes each day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

All of us at Local 6 will miss Lauren, and we wish her the best.
