I’m not going to brag or anything, but I pretty much knew this would happen! I’ve known Scott for 20 years!
Three months after saying adios to viewers, Scott Levin is heading back to his anchor chair.
Journalism can run pretty deep in your bones. There’s just no doubt about it. The work you’re doing can and does make a difference in the community. No doubt about that, either. And sometimes, when you think you’re done, your heart gives you a nudge; not so fast.
That seems to be what happened to Scott. He took a risk, and followed his heart. He was hoping to spend more time with his wife and daughters. But, lets face it, that’s tough these days regardless of your career path. And the truth is – he missed the work.
So, he’s going back. I guess the folks at WGRZ had a feeling, which might explain why they didn’t rush to fill his seat. They had the best of both worlds – a great fill in with Adam Benigni while leaving open the possibility of a Levin comeback.
Scott told me he just knew he had to follow his heart. He said the recent tornado made him miss breaking news and all that comes with it. He told me he just knew, “Never say never… always listen to God and his cues. Life is short!!!”
It sure is.
I’m a firm believer in following your heart; that’s what got me here. To this blog. To being a work-from-home-mom.
I’m happy for Scott and his family. Happy that WGRZ has made it possible for Scott to have the best of both worlds; his job and more flexibility and time off to spend with his beautiful family.
