Cody explained to The Times-Picayune that he decided to make the move because he wanted a more family-friendly schedule. He is married to WWL reporter Jill Hezeau, who works weekday mornings, and the couple has one child and another on the way.
“It’s a lifestyle change,” Cody told The Times-Picayune. “I get the chance to be home on the weekends. I get to be home at a reasonable hour during the week.”
Cody’s last shift on-air is set for next Wednesday.
