18 News TODAY bids a fond farewell to Samantha LaRocca

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - On Friday, Samantha LaRocca signed off one final time on 18 News TODAY. 

She had this final message for all of our viewers:

"I just want to thank everyone for letting me into your homes every morning. There is nothing I love more  then delivering the forecast to all of you everyday. As you know for most of us here this is our first on air job out of college. Every new job is a challenge but for us we have a camera  following us every step of the way as we are learn and grow into the on air personalities we want to be. I thank you for being patient and so kind from the beginning to the end. I have learned so much about the industry and myself over the past 2 years. I look forward to what the future has to bring but the Twin Tiers will always have a special place in my heart."

~ Samantha LaRocca. 

LaRocca is going to WHEC-TV in Rochester where she'll continue to use her gifts of forecasting the weather.
