WISN-TV (Channel 12) anchor Toya Washington is going part time "in order to balance the challenge of being a young mom and a journalist," the station announced Wednesday.
She will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. newscast with Kathy Mykleby.
The station will conduct "an internal and nationwide search" for "a high quality journalist" to replace her and join Mykleby at 10 p.m.
This also will give the station an opportunity to fine-tune a 10 p.m. newscast that recently has been in second place in the ratings.
Washington joined the station in 2002. She returned from maternity leave last July.
Mykleby also anchors the 6 p.m. newscast.
