Former CBS11 reporter Raquel Eatmon, who left the station earlier this year, is now out of a job at Mobile, Alabama's NBC affiliate, WPMI-TV.

The city's Press-Register reports that the ex-Miss Ohio World resigned from the station after just four months of co-anchoring the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts. She reportedly plans to return to the Midwest.

Eatmon told the Press-Register that it "was just time to go. In this business, you can have great days and not-so-great days. Imagine having a string of not-so-good days without having family."

WPMI "wasn't a very good fit," she said. "I've never worked at a station like NBC 15."

Station management had no comment on Eatmon's departure. She had joined CBS11 in 2005.
