In a span of two days, two well-known local TV personalities announced they would be leaving their respective stations.

First, KSN News weekday morning anchor Katie Taube announced she will leave the station on Oct. 31.

Then on Wednesday, KAKE News reporter Monica Castro, who had been with the station for four years, announced her last day there will be Friday.

In a Facebook post, Taube wrote that the decision was the result of “station management decisions beyond my control.”

Taube joined KSN in January of 2012, and most recently has anchored its “Kansas Today” broadcast, as well as the noon newscast.

She wrote in her Facebook post that she looks forward to “some quality time with my husband and kiddos as well as a new adventure of my own.”

Taube told the Eagle she plans on staying in Wichita with her husband to start a website that will showcase local-made content.

An Illinois native, Taube came to Wichita from a broadcasting job in Sioux Falls, S.D.

To keep up with her project, follow her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.

In a Facebook post, Castro said she made the decision to leave Wichita with “lots of tears,” but that “my gut was telling me it was time for a new adventure and more opportunities.”

Longtime Wichita TV anchor Roger Cornish has announced he will retire. His final broadcast is May 23. (April 23, 2018)
