“When I told him about it, his response was, ‘I get my mommy back,’” Perino said in a statement on the station website. “That was pretty much all I needed to hear.”
Perino has worked at WLEX for 10 years with two short stays at CNN Headline News. She hasn’t set a date for her departure.
“We’re going to miss her greatly,” said WLEX news director Bruce Carter. “But I think she’s doing the right thing for her personal life. She’s just been a tremendous employee.”
