Missouri’s KMBC 9 bid farewell to the weekend anchor Keleigh Gibbs on April 25. The journalist joined the station in 2016, and has become a treasured personality among Kansas City residents since. They are, of course, sad to see her go and have lot of questions about her leaving. Gibbs is relatively private about her personal life and parts of her career. Which makes her fans curious about why she left the ABC affiliate and where is she going next.
