It was a special day for Fox 26 anchor Melinda Spaulding in Houston Friday night.

The veteran journalist is retiring from news and taking a position at Texas Southern University.

Spaulding wants to spend more time with her husband and children that’s why she vacated her anchor chair. 

Dozens of of her colleagues and friends showed up to wish her a fond farewell at the Buffalo Soldiers’ Museum.

Here are some of the pics I snapped at the event.

    I will truly miss seeing her on-screen. It was lovely getting to know her when I did those “Your Family Matters” segments. She was there mentoring us during rehearsals. She was always so positive, radiant, and caring. I know that she will bring all her best to TSU.
