After 16 Years, Catherine Pegram Is Saying Goodbye To Channel 5
16 years is a pretty sweet run...
Local TV news anchor Catherine Pegram is calling it a day at the Channel 5 news desk. Just this morning, she spoke to her viewers on the WABI Facebook page, and gave some insight as to where life will be taking her, now that she'll no longer be sharing the latest news with all of the Bangor area, and beyond.
Her husband, local businessman Jeff Solari, owns a couple of restaurants around the area, such as Kosta's in Brewer. Soon, they'll be opening a third location, and Catherine said in her Facebook post, that she'll have a pretty active role in their new restaurant venture.
Saying goodbye is always hard.
Call me a weirdo, but before I got into radio, I used to switch jobs all the time. When I did kitchen work, I used to change jobs about every year and a half, it seemed. I can't imagine spending 16 years in one place. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'd love to pretty much retire in radio, so I'm not going anywhere, anytime soon.
Pegram also says she looks forward to her new lifestyle including a lot more family. Be it helping them out, or running her teenagers around, the priority seems to be spending as much time with family as possible. We can all relate to that, I imagine. For sure, the ongoing pandemic has taught us all what our priorities are.
Over here at Townsquare Media, we wish Catherine nothing but the best, from one media person to another. Enjoy this newfound time, and time with family. You've certainly earned every minute of it you have coming.
