We’re now professionals at saying goodbye to good friends

Over the past 5 years I have seen many good friends come and go through WLIO. Just this past December Andy Young and his fiance Kristy left Lima for thier hometown of Buffalo. Now our morning meteorologist Laura Betker and her boyfriend Bryan are leaving us for a job in Minneapolis (also thier hometown). The selfish side of me never wants people like this to leave. They were all great friends here in Lima and will really, really be missed. For several years, I saw the work they did here at WLIO and can honestly say that they truly cared and were passionate about their work. It’s a very safe bet to say that I know I will not be the only one who misses them 😦 All of us here in West Central Ohio are rooting for you guys to continue doing great things in your new jobs!!!!

This is the all too familiar reality of the business we work in! If there is an upside to the turnaround it’s that we constantly get the chance to meet new people, people from all over the country sometimes, and hopefully make lifelong friendships in the process!

  1. Kyle, that’s what I liked best about working at a small station. You get to REALLY know people. I know it was hard for me to leave and not to get to see my friends everyday. Andy and Laura are both very talented and now they will be serving even more people.
