MBC presenter Lee Ha-jeong is moving to TV Chosun, which will begin broadcasts in December, as the main news anchor. Lee resigned from MBC on Monday and told the company she is moving to the new cable channel.
Lee is married to actor Jung Jun-ho.
Lee told the Chosun Ilbo on Monday, "I started working for MBC hoping to be there for my whole professional career, but I began to think about my future last year. I wanted to take on a new challenge before it's too late."
She said she is passionate about broadcasting and hopes she will be able to play many roles at TV Chosun. "My husband held my hand this morning and prayed for me. He gave me support and encouragement because he knew it was tough leaving a company where I worked for six years."
Lee graduated from Yonsei University and then worked for MBC hosting several shows and news programs.
