We have huge news coming from one of our local television stations in Rochester, Minnesota! A long-time news anchor is coming back to our TV screens after years away from the desk and she'll be joining the ABC 6 News team.

This hire comes after the announcement that Laura Lee is leaving ABC 6 News. Yes, in case you hadn't seen that sad news, Laura has made the decision to leave the news desk at ABC 6 and her last day is coming up at the end of this month, April 28th. She has been there for 13 years and everyone will definitely miss her!

Since Laura is leaving, someone new was needed to come in and join the ABC 6 team. Well, I suppose this person isn't really 'new' necessarily but she is new to ABC 6.

Who's Joining the ABC 6 Team

The new yet familiar face on ABC 6 is Emmy award winning Robin Wolfram. You may recognize her from KTTC where she used to be a news anchor. Her career path then changed and she started in real estate. She also hosted an HGTV show and more recently she had moved back to Iowa to take care of her parents full-time.

So a big congrats to Robin for joining the ABC 6 team and best of luck to Laura on her new adventure!
