...
Just one word captured the departure of longtime Buffalo television anchor Jodi Johnston from the airwaves Wednesday: Bittersweet.
Its bittersweet to leave peoples lives, Johnston said a few hours after wrapping up her final stint on the Daybreak early-morning program on WGRZ Channel 2.
I am grateful for people whove watched me all these years, she said. Its hard to say goodbye.
Johnston, who had been at Channel 2 for 12 years and in broadcast journalism for 16 years, is moving on to an executive position at First Niagara Bank.
A longtime anchor of the Daybreak program, in recent years Johnston also hosted an evening newscast for the station.
Johnston, who is married and the mother of an 8-year-old son, said she felt unable to continue with the difficult schedule demanded by broadcast news.
Hes just the highlight of my life, Johnston said of her son, Max. But hes getting to an age where hes getting busy. Weve got sports, weve got school activities, the homework is mounting up. He needed me with him in the mornings and the evenings, and thats what I was missing.
I dont want to miss out on that, she said. These years are just so precious.
Max, a third-grader in a local Catholic school, came on to the Daybreak program Wednesday to appear with Johnston for a final time and to read a moving personal letter.
...
I have made some incredible friendships from people who are just great members of this community, over the years, Johnston said. The biggest honor of this job has been telling the stories of incredible people. Ill miss that.
Johnston called her new job in banking an extension of, not a break from, her job in journalism and communications.
This opportunity that Ive been presented with at First Niagara is really a natural extension of my career, she said. It will allow me to use my unique skill set. I feel like I have a great opportunity.
Johnston, who for years has risen before dawn to make it on time to the Daybreak set in Buffalo, said she looks forward to one aspect of her new job: more predictable hours.
Im hoping, she said, laughing, it will be much more normal.
