'KOUSIN KIM' MAKES BIG `LIFE CHANGE': After 16 years with NBC5 Chicago as well as 30 total years in the daily TV news business, our longtime close "cousin" Kim Vatis will be stepping down from daily news at NBC5 to focus on family and travel, as reported this week by veteran media observer Robert Feder in his news blog.
For the past several years, Kim has been a weekday morning reporter at NBC5 and she also anchors weekend mornings, in addition to hosting the weekly "Your Money" show on personal finance. A University of Florida alum, Kim is an avid golfer and world traveler, two things she is sure to be doing more in the coming years. Her final appearance as a full-timer at NBC5 will be December 1. She maintains her home in Chicago and will continue to be based here. Kim (pictured above in glasses at the GMC's Summer 2012 rooftop event at the National Hellenic Museum) is a charter member of the GMC. Apropos to her Greek goddess roots, her nickname in the news biz is Kim Vatis "The News Goddess. From all of us here at the GMC, we wish "The News Goddess" all the success and happiness in the world as she pursues the next chapter in her life.
EXTRA "COUSIN CREDITS": NBC5 anchor/reporter Kim Vatis and her weekend morning crew were just granted an extra hour on Saturdays and Sundays for additional programming and an expanded scope.

Off to pursue "new adventures," WMAQ-Channel 5 reporter and news anchor Kim Vatis is resigning her full-time position at the NBC-owned station after 16 years.
But Frank Whittaker, station manager and vice president of news at NBC 5, is leaving the door open for Vatis to return.
"Kim has decided it's time for a change in her life," Whittaker said in a memo.
"With her daughter, Dakota, now off to college, Kim is hoping to travel more and take on other projects outside of local television news.
"While Kim is off to new adventures, she and I have discussed continuing her relationship with NBC 5 News on a part-time basis, both for daily reporting and special projects. We'll be working out those details in the weeks ahead."
Whittaker praised Vatis, calling her "an integral part of NBC 5 News both on the street as a reporter and on the anchor desk.
Before joining NBC 5 in 1997, Vatis was an anchor and reporter in Orlando, Jacksonville and Gainesville, Florida, and Bangor, Maine. She graduated from the University of Florida.
Monday noon update:Vatis tweeted the following: "I will always love news. But after 30 years.
