Anchor Laura Gibbs is leaving morning TV for morning radio.

Gibbs is set to depart her post as morning anchor for WREX in Rockford, IL to become a co-host of area radio station WGFB’s morning show.

Her last day with WREX, an NBC-affiliate, will be next week.  John Chadwick, WREX’s vice president and general manager, told the Rockford Register Star that the station is busy searching for her replacement.
