Beloved KOAT Action 7 News anchor Cynthia Izaguirre is leaving Albuquerque local news as of the 21 st . 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.

could you forget your Abiquiu retreat? You are welcome, Cynthia.
