Tom McNamara to Leave KVOA

After 18 years at the desk at KVOA, Tom McNamara will be leaving the station at the end of his contract in mid-December to pursue real estate investing.

News 4 Tucson is sad to announce that our longtime anchor Tom McNamara will be leaving when his current contract expires.

"Investing in real estate has been a passion of mine for several years now," said McNamara. "KVOA and I have been discussing my desire for change for many months. I appreciate how patient & supportive they have been through this process."

No word on whether McNamara is also leaving his recently-added gig at KUAT's Arizona Illustrated. If you're super interested, he's apparently going to discuss his future on Tuesday's 10 p.m. broadcast.

Sadly, McNamara isn't leaving to return to acting, although since his only credited appearance was as a Baseball Fury in 1979's The Warriors, he probably was wise to leave on a high note.
