Yeransian speaks; says she's moving on


Former Channel 10 reporter Leslie Yeransian, who parted ways with the station in July, got in touch this week.

She says she is not trying to return to WJAR and is instead looking "for a company that recognizes my value as a hardworking team player and pays me accordingly. In the meantime, I''m always utilizing my passion and drive to create my own projects."

Yeransian sent along the following note:

I want to thank the Rhode Island community for their passion, warmth and support. The last few weeks have been extremely difficult for me as I am no longer doing what I love: communicating with the public. I greatly appreciate your outpouring of kindness.

Rhode Island is like no other community. It's like what every community wants to be, a throw-back to the 1950s, when people loved their streets, cared about their schools and reached out to their neighbors.

I want to thank the police and fire departments, the elected officials, the Armenian, Portuguese and Italian communities and churches, all of the local universities, the Rhode Island Fishermen's Alliance,  Rhode Island Housing, the Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission and every individual who makes the Ocean State such a special oasis. Your initiative and passion for the community creates a synergy, a life force, that has the power to produce change. May you continue to serve with strength, grace and compassion.
