“It’s been my home for more than 35 years. It’s been the most amazing, remarkable, wonderful career that anybody can ever hope for,” Margolis said Wednesday. “I look forward to spending time with my family and different projects I’ll be working on – and I’ll miss everybody but this is, I think, the right time for me to be making this step.”.
Margolis grew up in Buffalo, New York, and graduated cum laude with a degree in English from the State University of New York at Buffalo, where she did graduate work in Communication. Sherry joined WJBK in 1984.
