GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A familiar face on FOX 17 Morning News, Deanna Falzone spent eight years waking up viewers with her engaging personality. She announced this morning that she is departing the station.

She had a special message for viewers that you can watch in the attached video.

Deanna shared her life, the births of her sons, struggles with anxiety and passion for non-profits.

Our viewers have always had a special place in her heart. "As for the job, it has taught me a great deal over the years and really made me realize that everyone truly has their own unique story. But it’s when you actually take the time to listen you learn the most about others and yourself."

Deanna’s move into a part-time role this summer allowed her more time for her family and created a smooth transition to a new anchor team, while still being a part of our viewers’ mornings.

Deanna is a graduate of Central Michigan University and a native of Detroit. She worked at WLNS-TV in Lansing before coming to FOX 17 in 2013.

We are grateful to Deanna for all she's brought to our viewers and the team.
