“I’m very appreciative of my time at Channel 4, they took me at a serious time in my life,” Hong told Buffalo media blogger Alan Pergament. “I’m getting older and it’s time for a new adventure.”
Hong originally joined WIVB in 1993, but left three years later. She returned to WIVB in 2003 after stints at WPHL in Philadelphia and WRGZ in Buffalo. According to Pergament, she plans to leave television altogether.
