Jepson says that ever since we reported that she’d been let go by WFAA Channel 8, she has wanted to write in and share her thoughts. She restrained herself, sounds like, and made sure she drafted the below with a clear head. And she says:
I loved my job at WFAA. I loved — truly loved my co-workers. My friends. I am thankful my WFAA career ended on the top. I am proud of the work we did and enjoyed it immensely.
Many thanks to everyone for your kind words and prayers. I’ve read a few of your blogs and am grateful. Blessed really. I am pleased that I will be remembered as a “real” person who delivered your news of the day with compassion and conviction. I believe those qualities are still important and can serve me well on the air again in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
In the meantime I’ve already enjoyed spending extra time with my husband and daughters, who are the real blessings in my life. As always I wish everyone the best and thanks to all for making my time at WFAA so enjoyable.
Thank you for allowing me some “down time” to regroup and make decisions about my next career steps. Please keep me and my family in your prayers.
