News10 longtime anchor Sharon Ito is leaving the station.
Sharon began in the business 30 years ago in radio and then came to TV news as a writer/ producer.
In her first stint at News10, Sharon produced the weekend newscasts and reported on other days.
She left to report for a Los Angeles TV station but was back in Sacramento before too long, this time as co-anchor of News10 Good Morning.
Sharon detoured to news10.net for a few years where she hosted and moderated a News10 Midday live chat with newsmakers online as well as produced for the website.
Most recently, Sharon anchored breaking and national news on News10@9.
The decision to take a career break hasn't been an easy one, Sharon says, but she feels it is important to spend more time with her 11-year-old daughter and family.
Sharon has always been the gracious yet consummate professional in her work and her News10 family will miss her. But since her husband is News10 reporter George Warren, we expect to see her again - at least for a visit!
We wish our friend the very best!
