CBC Manitoba reporter Aarti Pole is leaving the Prairies.
ChrisD.ca has learned Pole is heading back to her native city of Vancouver and will work at the CBC bureau out there beginning in September.
Her new duties will include a mix of reporting and hosting.
Aarti first came to Manitoba in August 2007 from Terrace, B.C. where she was a videojournalist, radio reporter and anchor for a CBC-affiliated station.
“I’m totally going to miss the lovely people here, but I’m thrilled to be going home,” Aarti said in an e-mail late this afternoon.
Her last day on the air in Winnipeg will be Thursday, August 19.
