It's goodnight from Heather Foord

While there has been speculation about the future of Channel 9 Brisbane newsreader Bruce Paige of late, it's his colleague Heather Foord who has announced her resignation from newsreading duties (but apparently not the station). Is this the beginning of several changes on the Mountain? Here's the Nine media release (which, as usual in these cases, cites family reasons):

Nine News presenter, Heather Foord, announced in tonight’s bulletin that she has decided to leave her position as Nine News presenter for the 6pm bulletin.
After 21 years with Nine News, this was a difficult decision which Heather has made to allow her to more time to spend with her husband Tony and four daughters; India, twins Grace and Riley and Maya.
Heather’s statement from the Nine News 6pm Bulletin;
“Before we go, I have some news of my own. After 21 years with the Newsroom, I have decided that this year will be my last. While I love bringing you the news every evening, I would love even more to be home, watching it, with my girls. So this time in a fortnight it'll be goodnight, and goodbye. It's been an absolute privilege being in your lounge rooms for two decades.”
Whilst Heather will not present the 6pm weeknight news bulletin, she will remain contracted to Channel Nine and we look forward to developing opportunities for Heather to remain on air in 2009.
Nine Director of News, Lee Anderson says “Channel Nine understands Heather's decision. There's only one thing that would stop Heather reading the news and that's her commitment to her family. We'll be looking at other ways Heather can contribute which enable her to keep a balance between work and family life.”
Over Heather’s twenty-one years she has seen many changes. Prime ministers and (even more) Premiers have come and gone and she has shared the news desk with several leading men. One career highlight was reporting live from Buckingham Palace for Princess Diana's funeral. Heather says “I have enjoyed every day of my twenty-one years with the newsroom and will miss everyone enormously.”
Nine News co-presenter Bruce Paige says “It has been wonderful working with Heather. She’s a consummate professional and she’s more than a colleague, she’s a valued friend. I will miss sharing the News desk with her.”
