Amy Morrow, anchor and reporter for WRCB-TV, has decided to leave the television station after 10 years, station officials said Monday.

She has co-anchored Channel 3 Eyewitness News at 11 p.m. for more than a year.

Ms. Morrow grew up in Rossville and graduated from Ridgeland High School before earning a degree from the University of Georgia. She began her broadcasting career at Dalton's community cable station, WDNN. She later worked at the NBC affiliate in Tupelo, Miss., before returning home.

Station officials said, "With many co-workers, friends, and viewers who love Amy we know she will always be part of the Channel 3 family.

"You will still see Amy around; she said she plans to remain in the Tennessee Valley. The station will honor Amy's career with WRCB with a special tribute during her last day on Friday, July 22."

Current Weekend Anchor Callie Starnes, who has been with WRCB for more than three years, will join Greg Glover weeknights as co-anchor on Channel 3 Eyewitness News at 11 p.m. on July 25. Antwan Harris, a reporter at WRCB for more than two years, will become Weekend Anchor.
