bianca martinezOn the heels of the news that Beverly Kidd is returning to WTKR, evening anchor Bianca Martinez announced on Facebook she is leaving the Norfolk CBS affiliate:

I have made the tough but exciting decision to step away from the anchor desk. It is time to focus more on my family. I have received a wonderful opportunity to work for a fantastic company and I’m so excited! First Data is making a huge commitment to the military community I’m so passionate about and I will be working as a Veteran and Military Spouse recruiter… lead by some amazing people.

Martinez anchors the 4, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts. She will officially sign off Friday, although she says WTKR viewers “will still catch me on the air every now and then with special reports.”

It’s impossible not to be affected by the sad stories.”
