Dear CBC Viewers;

I've decided to take the next year away from the anchor desk in order to do something very exciting: I'm adopting a little girl!  

Her story will be hers to tell (or not) someday. But let's just say the Pedler family is incredibly thrilled to be welcoming a new member, especially one so bright, funny and charming.

I'm going to miss my CBC co-workers and I'm going to miss you, our CBC viewers.

Over the last nine years, you have been very, very kind to me. But right now I must focus on my family. 

I will be back. Until then, so long.
