Blue Rolfes left a message on her official Facebook page to all of Acadiana.
"After more than 40 years in the broadcast news business, 38 of those years here at KLFY, it's time to start a new chapter in my life. At the end of next month, I'll be leaving to take on a new challenge right here in Acadiana, and I'm excited about it and really looking forward to this new opportunity. I'll definitely miss all the wonderful, talented people I've had the good fortune to work with here at KLFY, and I'll always be so very grateful and thankful for the friendshi...p and support from all of our viewers and folllowers over all these decades on the air. It's been an incredible career, and I've loved every minute of it, but it's time to move on. As my good friend Rob Macko always says, if you love what you do, you'll never feel like you've had to work a day in your life. Thanks so much for all the wonderful memories and experiences and friendships, Acadiana, I'm truly blessed to have been a part of your lives. I'll leave you with a line from one of my favorite Neil Young songs, "Long May You Run." "...We've been through some things together, with trunks of memories still to come..." On behalf of Dee Stanley and our family, thanks for everything!"
