Lambert tells Tulsa World that she is very close to her two sisters, who still live in Springfield. “My bottom line is if channel 8 could physically move to Springfield, you would have to kick me out of this place,” she said. “But I can’t be in two places at one time.”
Lambert anchors the weekday newscasts at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. for the ABC affiliate. Since 1990, she has been hosting and producing KTUL’s “Waiting Child” segments, which feature children up for adoption in the Tulsa area. As a result of the public awareness campaign, 4,000 children have found homes.
Lambert said she has no plans to retire. “I’m just getting some new opportunities in a different town.”
