After 7 years of working and living in Seattle, I am leaving the city. The people who know me best understand that this is my favorite place in the whole world. This decision has not been an easy one to make.

When life calls for change we can not resist but instead put our best-foot forward while knowing the whole time, that with change can come a bounty of great things.

I will be heading back to Vancouver, Washington to spend some long overdue time with my family. I have two of the most amazing parents in the world. I have spent most of the last 15-years traveling around for my career in television and look forward to being able to spend more time with them.

I hope to spend some time with old friends and as always, make new ones. I have a 20-year high school reunion in August and it will be great to see everyone and hear how their lives are going.

The extra time I've had has afforded me the luxury to get back in touch with my one true love... music. I have ideas and projects in the works already with plans to expand at a breaking news pace. Looking back it's hard to believe that with all the music scholarships I had on the table, I somehow wound up working in broadcasting. I am thankful for this time I've had to rekindle a flame I will not let the pilot light go out on ever again.

So to my Seattle friends I say goodbye for now. If you should need me I am only three hours away. You know how to reach me and I hope to be back soon.

To my Vancouver/Portland friends, look out because I am coming home!

T-Minus 5 days and counting till I leave Seattle.

Television is far better off for the 15 years you gave it, Rob. Good luck.

Sorry to hear you're leaving Seattle because I know how much you love it there. But I know you love your parents too, and they will be very happy to have you home. Besides, now you'll ALWAYS be there when I go home to visit!!
