Veteran Anchor Kim Joo-ha to Quit MBC

2015/03/06 | Permalink | Source

Veteran anchor Kim Joo-ha will leave MBC after 18 years of working there. An MBC spokesman on Wednesday said Kim leaves on Friday.

She started her career as a newscaster but made a rare move to the newsroom as a reporter. For over a decade, she has been one of the nation's most prominent news presenters.

In 2007, she became the sole host of MBC's prime time news program on weekends -- a first for a woman on a main terrestrial channel.

Kim did not confirm rumors that she is moving to TV Chosun. "I wanted to have a bit of time to myself. I worked ceaselessly for almost 20 years, so I want to take a break", she said.

Kim recently got divorced following 11 years of marriage and a drawn-out legal battle. She won custody of her two children.
