Monday, June 29, 2015
BUFFALO NEWS -- Channel 7 anchor-reporter Kendra Eaglin has left the station and is moving back to her home state of California. A native of Oakland, Eaglin confirmed her departure in a brief Twitter message to Talkin’ TV. “It was a good run here,” Eaglin wrote. “When my contract ended, I decided to go back home to be with my family. I’ve been gone seven years. It’s time.” In a separate tweet, Eaglin added that she was “’close to moving forward with a broadcast job closer to home.” A 2007 graduate of San Francisco State University, Eaglin worked at a station in Montana and a cable station in San Francisco before joining Channel 7 about five years ago. She had been the evening anchor on Saturday and Sunday newscasts until the station decided last fall to team Ed Drantch and Katie Morse on Sundays, leaving Eaglin only the Saturday evening anchor.
