Markie Martin is leaving KOCO Channel 5…

Changes are coming to a KOCO Channel 5 morning show near you!

Late last week, Markie Martin – one of the 20 Hottest Women in the Oklahoma City News Media if we still ranked the 20 Hottest Women in the Oklahoma City News Media – announced on social media that she is leaving the KOCO Channel 5 morning show.

That's sweet. That being said, I do feel sorry for whoever gets Markie's old keyboard:

"Hey Abigail, why are your hands covered with smeared mascara, blush and eyeshadow?"

"Damnit! They gave me Markie Martin's old keyboard!"

In case you're wondering why Markie is leaving your grandparents' TV screen, I think I have part of the answer:

Yep, it looks like Markie is pulling the old "Get engaged after 10 years of dating and quit your job" routine, or maybe she's like everyone else in TV news and hates her job and wanted to quit. Who knows?

Back in TLO's brah'stool days, I bet we would have been pretty upset about Markie's departure, posted a photo tribute listicle in her honor, and made fun of her fiance. Now that we've matured, I'm just going to point you to her vague, over-dramatized "Love Letter to OKC" that feels like it was written by an emotional high school grad who's moving out-of-state for college. We wish her the best of luck in her future adventures.
