WCCO Weekend Anchor Goes Part-Time to ‘Reconnect’ with His ‘Real Life’

moddy wccoWCCO reporter and weekend anchor Edward Moody has cut back on his hours at the Minneapolis CBS owned station so he can reconnect with his family.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Moody “asked to go part time, so I could reconnect with my REAL life. I’d been hopping around the country for about a decade, and maybe two years ago I realized I’d basically missed 10 years of the lives of the people I love, chasing this dream. So now I’m using the extra time to be with my partner Up North and see my mom, aunt and grandmother more.”

Moody told the Star-Tribune, “I didn’t want to totally step away from my career, but I needed to pull back. Some people can balance a demanding career and personal life, but I wasn’t doing it so well.”

Moody started at WCCO in 2012.
