Change is coming in the KARE 11 newsroom, with reporter Lindsey Seavert taking a step back from her full-time duties.

The award-winning reporter, a native of Golden Valley, announced to her Facebook followers this week that she'll be reducing her role at the NBC-affiliate.

She describes her new position as a "part-time, freelance storytelling role" at the station, which will see her continue working on the ongoing documentary about Lucy Laney Elementary School in north Minneapolis.

That'll continue until at least this fall, she says, noting she's also accepted a storytelling opportunity "in the corporate world."

So you'll be seeing less of Seavert on Twin Cities TV, as she writes: "It’s not exactly a goodbye to the newsroom I’ve treasured for nearly seven years, just more of a deliberate slowdown."

The move will also give the mom-of-two more time to spend with her kids, saying her life has "drastically changed" since they were born.

Ahead of the birth of her second child, Phoebe, Seavert was hospitalized for more than a month in what was a high-risk pregnancy, with this Star Tribune story reporting that her prematurely-born daughter Phoebe had hearing loss in one ear.

"Since becoming a mom of two kids who both have extra challenges, my life has drastically changed, but my calling is everlasting," she wrote.

"I still will be able to bring goodness and light into the world through new forms of storytelling, while soaking in more of that fleeting scenery—bus stop hugs and spelling tests, sticky fingers and Sesame Street, smiles I don’t see often enough."

Before joining KARE, Seavert had spells with WCCO, WBNS-TV in Columbus, Ohio, KTVN-TV in Reno, Nevada, and KCCO-TV in Alexandria.
