After 12 years occupying the anchor chair, Lily Wu is leaving Gray’s KWCH to see if she can move into the mayor’s chair in Wichita, KS.

She has yet to officially file to run in the election which takes place later this year, but she appears ready to jump in with both feet.

“After 30 years of calling Wichita home, my love for our community and the investment it has made in me, has led me to consider serving our community in new ways. I’m resigning from KWCH to remove any perceived conflict of interest as an on-camera personality to consider a leadership role with the City of Wichita…This will give me the time, energy and attention to explore a possible run for mayor. I’m humbled by how Wichita has embraced me and my family since immigrating here 30 years ago.”

It will be a crowded ballot come November.

At least five other candidates have committed to run.
