the priviledge and pleasure hasn't just belonged to you. You've garnered an incredible amount of respect amongst the rest of us here at wdbj7. It's hard for journalists to strike a balance between being tough and still showing our personality. But if you look at your ten-plus years here, it's that personality that's made you loved. Nat pop of Susan anchoring. [Track 1] Susan came to wdbj7 in 2004. She's the face you've watched on weekend mornings for several years. You've grown to love her personality. And who could forget the morning she couldn't quite hold it together while reading a story about a slightly overweight cat that went viral. sot full let the cat video run for a bit (end sot) [Track 2] But Susan has brought us some other very memorable stories. Like the time she went to the Boogie Woogie man's wrestling camp in 2006. Nat pop from that story. [Track 3] She even had a memorable moment just last month when she got caught in a rain storm. In classic Susan style, she toughed it out. Live in Roanoke, Susan Bahorich, wdbj7 [Track 4] Many of you know she's tough, not only because she courageously fought ovarian cancer, but she fought it in front of you.

All of us at wdbj7 will miss you, Richmond's getting a special gal. Where do i begin? I've been doing the Sunday show for the last 10 and a half years. i did the math, with vacations, that's about 520-Sundays. As i always say, some shows and days -have been better than others. But, you the viewers have beared with me and stuck it out. And, for that i will be eternally grateful! You were there as i lost it over a swimming cat, was recently drenched in the rain and on a more serious note- as i battled cancer. Words cannot begin to thank you for your cards, facebook/ email messages - and most importantly your prayers. i know all these things were vital in my recovery. i now know- and have felt- the power of prayer. More than a year after my chemo treatments, i am cancer-free, fully recovered and my prognosis is excellent. (and my hair is looking pretty good too!) i often tell people i meant to only be here at wdbj7 for two-years, but instead i found a home, friends who became like family and a region that welcomed me with open arms. Thank you for that. I'm now preparing for a new journey. This is my last show for wdbj7. At the end of month, i start a new chapter at the nbc station in Richmond. I'm excited for what the future holds, but i know I'll miss the people here at your Hometown Station and i know I'll miss you, the viewer. Thank you for allowing me into your homes every week. It's been a privlege and a pleasure.
