After nearly six years with NBC5, anchor/reporter Lindsay Wilcox is leaving the Fort Worth-based station after she and her husband. Raymond, had their third child last March.

Wilcox, a Dallas native and University of North Texas grad, joined NBC5 in August 2007 from KLTV-TV in Tyler, TX. She’s been anchoring the station’s weekend morning newscasts and also reporting during the week.

“The past 6 years have been such a blessing to me and my family,” Wilcox said in a memo to staffers forwarded by NBC5 to unclebarky.com Tuesday. “Working in my hometown has been a dream come true and the great co-workers and opportunities at NBC5 have been the icing on the cake. I will miss seeing each of you every day, but I know this is the right thing for me and my family.”

Susan Tully, NBC5’s longtime vice president of news, said the station “will miss Lindsay. She’s a solid journalist, delightful on the air and an enjoyable worker. We wish her and her family all the best in the future.”

Wilcox and her husband had their first child a daughter, Bella Reese, in March 2009. Their second child is a boy named Hayes, who is now 3. And baby boy Porter is now 3 months.

“Yep, I’m that news anchor who’s always pregnant,” Wilcox said with a :) on Twitter.
