News 5 anchorwoman Jennifer Horbelt is reuniting her family in Paducah, Ky., and will be leaving News 5 at the end of May, according to our news partners at KOAA.

Horbelt, who joined the station in 2012 as anchor for News 5 Today will be returning to WPSD in Paducah as evening anchor. WPSD had been her television home prior to her move to Colorado Springs/Pueblo.

Horbelt was popular with viewers in the Colorado Springs area. She was named favorite TV anchor by Gazette readers in the annual Best of the Springs, which was published last week.

While Jennifer has grown professionally and personally during her time at KOAA - moving from mornings to the evening anchor role, and meeting and marrying her husband, fellow KOAA employee Bobby Bonds - the pull to bring her family back together has been strong, KOAA reported on its website.

"My sister and her husband have just had their first child," said Jennifer. "Spending so much time with them as they prepared for this amazing event in their lives, made it clear that I, and especially my mother, needed to move close to them so we could all be a regular part of each other's lives again."
