FOX 9 reporter Christina Palladino has announced that her 16-year stint in TV news is coming to an end.

"That’s a wrap on a 16-year career as a television news journalist!" she posted on Twitter Thursday.

In another tweet, she said she's in "a season of life where my two little girls need their mama home more!"

She has already lined up her next gig, saying she'll be "working in media relations/govt affairs next," details of which she'll announce at a later date.

'I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work here & the lifelong friends I’ve met," she said.

Palladino moved to the Twin Cities and started working for FOX 9 in July 2017, having previously worked at Milwaukee ABC-affiliate WISN-12.

Prior to that she worked at WOI-TV in Des Moines, and got her start as a reporter and fill-in anchor at WHBF-TV in the Quad Cities, covering the cities on the Iowa/Illinois border.

She is the latest in a string of departures in the Twin Cities TV news market, though most of the recent movement has concerned KARE 11, from which Sven Sundgaard, Jason Disharoon, and Pat Evans have recently left.
