KUSA — TaRhonda Thomas, a reporter, anchor and staple at 9NEWS for more than a decade is leaving Colorado.

Her family is moving to Philadelphia for a new opportunity and to be closer to family on the East Coast.

"I've loved being here; it's been amazing. Everyone has been incredible," Thomas said while holding back tears last Sunday.

While we know she’ll be successful in Philadelphia, around here, we will miss her … a lot. We'll also miss that little reporter in training, Ruby Dee!

Thomas's last day is August 12.
