Morning Anchor Rebekah Wood Set to Leave KSTP

KSTP morning anchor Rebekah Wood, who has been with the Minneapolis-St. Paul ABC affiliate since 2008, announced she is leaving the station — and the city — in November to follow her husband to Tampa.

“It will be a hard move for me to make,” Wood told the Pioneer Press. “It’s the first big, big move I’ve ever made. I’m definitely a Minnesota girl at heart.”

Wood noted that she and her husband are renting their Minnesota home instead of selling it in case they want to come back. Her last day at the station — which has not yet announced a replacement for her alongside co-anchor Brad Sattin — is November 25.

Wood is a Minneapolis native who has also worked at several stations in Wisconsin, including WISC in Madison and WDJT in Milwaukee.
