Jennifer Mayerle bids CBS Atlanta adieu after eight years 

By Rodney Ho

Jennifer MayerleJennifer Mayerle tonight on Facebook announced her pending departure from CBS Atlanta as a reporter after eight years. She is giving the world two months notice so we’ll continue to see her on air until April.

She’s joining a CBS affiliate WCCO-TV in Minneapolis.

CBS Atlanta is not known for stability. Among its reporting crew, Mayerle was one of the veterans. (Rebekka Schramm is the veteran at 14 years, followed by Adam Murphy at 11 years.)

Here’s Mayerle’s note:

Well friends, my time in Atlanta is coming to a close. It’s been an incredible 8 years working at CBS Atlanta. I’ve been given opportunities that exceeded my expectations, worked with talented people and grown as a journalist and person. And soon, I’m heading home – home to take a reporting position at WCCO in Minneapolis. It’s the station where I had my first internship, the station I grew up watching, and the station I wanted to work at if I ever decided to live and work in Minneapolis. While bittersweet, I couldn’t be more excited to be joining such a great team. I have plenty more stories to tell in the two months before I say ‘so long’ to the South. To those in Atlanta, don’t be a stranger. To those in Minnesota, see you soon.

They have picked up weekend viewers since they wisely, hired Paul Ossman, to do the Weather after Channel 11, made that big mistake bringing in the boring bald guy from the Arkansas, that they recently fired. Ossman, was their best pick up in years. Now I can watch leave the TV on CBS on Sundays to watch the weather after Football, 60 minutes, The Race, The Good Wife and the Mentalist.

8 years is amazing with this CBS station to outlast the numerous different GM's they have had. Especially the ones, that want them to shout the news into the TV, for their elderly base.

They should bring back Jacquitta Williams.  I don't see why they let her go.
