Betteneschi’s boyfriend, Thomas Maxwell, proposed to her during her time in Virginia. They tied the knot on March 7, 2020.

Bettineschi has been busy at work during the pandemic. But WAVY-TV viewers will no longer see her on their television screens.

She wrapped up her last day at WAVY on December 6. She took to social media to thank her colleagues and viewers for supporting her during the nearly three years she was at the station.

While many viewers are sad to see her go, they wished her well in the comments section of her official profiles. Floridians who remember her from her time in Jacksonville are excited that she is coming back home.
