BUT, He’s Gay
Only one more week of Cynthia Izaguirre
Beloved KOAT Action 7 News anchor Cynthia Izaguirre is leaving Albuquerque local news as of the 21st. Izaguirre, the talking head who brought the world so much joy with this Freudian slip, wrote a beautiful poem, an ode to New Mexico:
It was January 2000 when New Mexico called my name..
I came to work for KOAT and my life would never again be the same.
My beloved Sandia Mountains quickly became my favorite place.
I learned to ski, hike and stare at the heavens face to face.
From Carlsbad Caverns to Cabezon Peak,
and how could I forget my Abiquiu retreat.
The land and spirit here are so beautiful to me,
That's why it's so hard for me to leave --
From the Native American jewelry, to all the traditions,
New Mexico in my life was such a great addition.
From my KOAT buddies to all of my close friends.
to all the viewers that I've met, this is one part of my journey I will never forget.
Thank you New Mexico... from the bottom of my heart.
How could you forget your Abiquiu retreat? You are welcome, Cynthia.
