Diaz quits anchor job

Today is Laura Diaz’s last day on the air as morning anchor at WKMG-6, the CBS affiliate in Orlando. She has been with the station almost 4 years.

The decision to leave was hers. “I don’t think I can do television anymore,” she told the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s just a lot of pressure. I got into it young. I moved up quickly. It’s really a tough job to do.”

Prior to joining WKMG, she worked in Monroe, LA as reporter and anchor for KTVE/KARD.
