Friday night, THV's own Anne Jansen signed off on a storied 25-year television career.She delivered her final broadcast at 6 p.m., saying her last on-air goodbye.

The staff at THV, along with her many viewers, are so sad to see her go.But we are lucky to have watched her for the better part of three decades.And in that time, she accomplished more than many could ever hope to achieve in a lifetime.
It all started back in 1982.Anne set out on a journey that would eventually make her one of Arkansas's best-known television personalities.She began as a college intern at KTHV-TV.
"I used to cut slides used to make inserts over the shoulders of the anchors," says Anne.
After her internship, she worked her way to reporter and eventually anchor.
"It just unfolded in front of me," she recalls.
"I joined a post that was at another TV station in town and spent all 4 years of high school doing things like visiting the art department, and ripping wire copy, and answering phones on election night, and the more I did all of that the more I knew I had to do this," she remembers.
Anne graduated from Little Rock's Mount Saint Mary Academy in 1978, but not before she was crowned Miss Teenage Little Rock and voted most likely to become the first woman president.She went on to study communications at the University of Tulsa, where she was also voted homecoming queen.All the while, she nurtured her growing passion for television news.
"I just kept coming back.Spring break, summer break, Christmas break, I just kept coming back to Channel 11," says Anne.
Her efforts paid off.The young woman, who describes herself as naturally curious, was hired immediately out of college to report the news in her hometown.
"How lucky is that?It really has been a blessing that I've been able to do that and stay here where I was raised, where I was born, because I really do care about what happens here," she says.
Part of caring about what happens in Arkansas meant grueling hours and countless stories.Recently, Anne journaled her most touching memories and shared them with viewers.Memories of her many hours, selflessly giving back to her community, through the Komen foundation and volunteering at Arkansas Children's Hospital.
The list of the stories she's covered over the years is extensive.
...
"Both people have died," Anne remembers.
"One was Monsignor George Tribou.He's such an amazing person and he's had such a positive influence on so many lives.The other one's Win Rockefeller," she says.
"I just remember when he was diagnosed, and I called his cell phone the next morning to ask if I could sit down and talk with him because we knew he was dropping out of the governor's race, and he was dropping his sons off at a bus stop that morning because they were headed to scout camp, and I thought, 'that is just what Win Rockefeller's all about,'" recalls Anne.
These days what Anne is all about is her family.
"Change is inevitable in life and it's really just time.It's just time."
It's time, Anne says, to stay home with her two sons, John and Michael, and husband, Dr. Ralph Broadwater.
...
So, it'll be hard," says Anne.
Anne has always been concerned about the enormous responsibility of getting it right as a journalist.Arkansans, no doubt, have benefited from her amazing professional talents.Talents she is now ready to use full-time as a mom and wife.
"It's not so much I'm leaving this because I don't want to do it anymore.It's more that I'm moving on to my family, because I really feel strongly that's where I need to move that's forward and good in the future," she says.
Jansen says she looks forward to picking her children up from school, cooking, painting, and gardening.She promises, after taking it easy for awhile, she will be involved in the Central Arkansas community.
