Yasmin Dar, evening anchor at KVAL in Eugene, Oreg., is leaving the CBS affiliate and the world of TV news altogether. Dar has decided to move back to her home state of Hawaii to be a stay at home mom.

Dar announced the news on her blog on Thursday, writing:

From the bottom of my heart, thank you Eugene and KVAL News for the wonderful memories. I know my new role as a stay at home mom will be, by far, one of the hardest jobs that I’ll ever have, but it has already been one of the most rewarding ones. I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my next adventures!!!

Dar joined KVAL in July 2012. She had been a traffic anchor at KITV, the ABC affiliate in Honolulu.

KITV Traffic Anchor Yasmin Dar Moves to KVAL

Yasmin Dar has been hired as the newest anchor at KVAL, the CBS-affiliate in Eugene, OR.

Dar is the traffic anchor at KITV, the ABC-affiliate in Honolulu. According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, KVAL news director Sean Flanagan saw Dar on KITV while he was vacationing in Hawaii.

“We believe that Yasmin will bring a unique dynamic to our newscast that will resonate with our viewers,” he said in a memo to KVAL staff.

Dar’s last day at KITV will be August 17. She will anchor the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts at KVAL starting August 30.
