Why Is Gia Vang Leaving KARE 11?
The actual reason for her leaving the show is currently unknown. She stated that she would provide more details in the future.
While she was in the show, she has created an impact in the local market during her three years there, most notably with anecdotes about her Hmong-American heritage.
However, she had previously announced that she was leaving the station.
Kang stated that she planned to reveal where she is headed but she did not do so. Instead, the station broadcast a story about her three years at KARE, during which she thanked viewers briefly.
Tomorrow will be my final shift at KARE11. I’m feeling a lot. I hope I can succinctly tell you what all of that is tomorrow morning. Join me for a last whirl any time from 5a to 7a. pic.twitter.com/0X4JLLcrs9— Gia Vang (@Gia_Vang) June 17, 2022
She said that it was a difficult decision to make. Leaving this community, not only my family but the Hmong and Asian communities as well. They've been so warm and inviting, it's difficult to put into words how much that means to me.
She also added, that this group has fostered a strong sense of sisterhood, and I'm glad for all of the connections, which I intend to carry with me.
Additionally, KARE 11 has yet to reveal who will replace Vang's position on Sunrise.
