“I feel like I’m ready for a new challenge. It feels like a new chapter for me, a new adventure,” Wells told the Toledo Blade. “I’m so proud of the work I’ve done here and that we’ve all done in this almost 20 years. I have met exciting people, told important stories, and am very proud.”
Wells joined WTVG in 1992 and has anchored several different newscasts during her tenure at the station. She currently anchors weekdays at 5:30 p.m.
“While we are naturally saddened that Susan will no longer be working in our newsroom, we are thrilled she will still be in Toledo and no doubt in contact with her 13abc colleagues,” WTVG executive news director Brian Trauring said in a statement. “This is an exciting opportunity for Susan and we are very proud of her.”
