Mary Jo Mitchell Gone from Headline News

I have been wondering where Mary Jo Mitchell has been in the last few weeks, mostly because of new hire Jeff Fischel on Sports duty on the weekends, and it seems she is gone from CNN. I found her Wikipedia entry, which mentions her leaving CNN Headline News due to budget cutbacks, or her image. (If there were budget cutbacks (which there most likely are, as they cut back the dayside anchors from 2 to 1), why would they have hired Jeff Fischel?) I checked in with WLEX-TV, where she came to CNN from, and found that she's back with WLEX-TV as sports anchor, also using her married name (or could be her maiden name which she may have used while there before).

On WLEX-TV's website, it says "It was there [at CNN] she realized how much she missed Lexington and all it has to offer."... so there's no telling why she actually left the network.

I thought she was a great sports anchor and addition to CNN, and she will definitely be missed.
