Traffic reporter Kacie McDonnell announced on today's "Good Day Philadelphia" that it is her last day at Fox 29.

In her announcement, McDonnell said she'll be working for a TV station in Kansas City.

The popular traffic reporter has decided to move closer to her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Aaron Murray (Murray's brother recently won the heart of Andi Dorfman on "The Bachelorette"). Their relationship became public last year.

McDonnell tearfully said goodbye to her "Good Day" family, saying she will always be a Philly girl. She recently posted a #ThrowbackThursday commemorating her second anniversary:

Last night, McDonnell teased her decision last night on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram but later deleted the post.

The former Miss Teen Pennsylvania rose to prominence rather quickly, getting the "Good Day" traffic job shortly after graduating from Villanova University in 2012. While in receiving her communications/journalism degree, McDonnell worked as a model, appearing in a commercial for Fiat Maple Shade and logging time as a QVC on air personality.
