Walder, who has been with the ABC-affiliate for the past 10 years, currently serves as news director in addition to anchoring the station’s 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts.
Her longtime boyfriend is in the Air Force and is being transferred from Grand Forks to Washington D.C. Walder plans to join him there at the end of the month.
“I never thought I would leave WDAZ or Grand Forks,” Walder told the Grand Forks Herald, which first reported the move. “I have been happy here. I love the people I work with. We have a great newsroom environment, and it just makes work fun.”
WDAZ serves the northern part of the Grand Forks market, near the Canadian border.
