Reporter Mary McGuire has announced that Tuesday is her last day at WCCO-TV.

The Edina, Minnesota native joined the Twin Cities' CBS affiliate in 2017, but announced that she will be leaving local TV news.

"This was not an easy decision for me to make," she wrote on Twitter. "Working in your hometown is a dream for many reporters & I feel very fortunate to have done so.

"Thank you for allowing me to tell your stories. It has made me love Minnesota even more."

Speaking to BMTN, McGuire said that she'll be taking a "much needed break" after working for nearly a decade "in the fast paced world of local TV news."

"After countless winter storm live shots, it most definitely includes a trip to a tropical destination," she joked.

After that? She'll be moving on to the "next chapter" but can't share any details right now.

"I can share that I most definitely will NOT be leaving Minnesota!" she said.

She is a former student of the University of Missouri, where she obtained a Master's Degree in journalism, and previously studied at the College of Communications and Fine Arts at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, during which she spent a year abroad at University College Cork in Ireland.
