WOFL Anchor Jacquie Sosa Decides to Walk Away

WOFL anchor Jacquie Sosa, who has been a fixture on TV screens in central and south Florida for the past decade, is walking away from the business.

Sosa joined Orlando’s WOFL in October 2008 and has been anchoring the Fox-affiliate’s morning newscast. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Sosa’s last day is Friday.

“I need to tend to my girls,” Sosa, who has two young daughters, told the Sentinel in explaining her motivation for leaving the anchor desk. “They’re my priority. They’re all that really matters. I need to give them 100 percent. People don’t realize I was at the station at 2:30 in the morning and going to bed at 6 at night. I couldn’t spend enough quality time with the girls.”

Before joining WOFL, Sosa worked at WKMG, a CBS-affiliate in Orlando, and WPLG, an ABC-affiliate in Miami. WOFL is currently searching for her replacement.
