Good-bye Message From Johnette Worak, WPSD Anchor

To my WPSD friends and family…..

    In journalism we always say, "don’t bury the lead", so here it is, right at the top.  Friday, May 20th, will be my last day at WPSD.  I’m sad to be leaving after 26 years, but I’m also excited, because I have so many things I want to do.  I’m going to focus on family at first, do a little traveling, sleep in late, and then maybe I’ll write the novel I’ve been talking about for years!  Right now, I want to thank all of you who’ve allowed me to tell your medical stories, host your events and come into your living room to deliver the news each day. I’m throwing kisses your way, you just can’t see me!  I will definitely miss my WPSD family, the rush of breaking news, and the perks that go along with being a Local 6 anchor, but that said, in the words of the great Tom Petty, "It’s time to move on." (That was an inside joke for my co-anchor Mike Mallory.)  I know you’ll still be watching Local 6 Today, because Mike Mallory, Mychaela Bruner, and John Champion, will continue to be the most awesome morning news team on local television! The best photographers, writers, directors, and news people in the region, maybe even the country, work at 100 Television Lane in Paducah! Take care everyone and wish me luck!
