KMBC Channel 9's weather center shakeup continues. Friday night was meteorologist Lisa Teachman's last with KMBC. 

Teachman posted a note to "family and friends" on her Facebook page yesterday morning announcing her last broadcast with the station:

"The day has arrived to deliver my last broadcast for KMBC tonight at 6 PM." she wrote. "While it may seem sad that this chapter in my life is coming to a close, I am excited to see where my future is headed."

Teachman thanked everyone for their support - the "handwritten letters to personal emails to posts right here on Facebook and Twitter," which she called "incredible!"

"I am overwhelmed!" she wrote. "Thank you so much! My family has read these comments and has also been touched by your thoughtfulness and kindness."

She promised to keep her followers "in the loop as to where my journey is destined to go next!"

Teachman's departure follows the exit of long-time morning weatherman Joel Nichols in late December.

Teachman had been rumored to be on the outs, which she confirmed in a January 7 Facebook post.

Teachman, who grew up in Kansas, joined KMBC in April 2007. Her bio is still live on KMBC's website. It says she's a member of the National Weather Association and American Meteorological Society and has earned a seal of approval from the American Meteorological Society. She won a regional Mid-America Emmy Award for her weather coverage in 2009.

A Facebook group has been started in support of Nichols and Teachman. It has 358 members. A post in the group shows Teachman with a giant "We will miss you, Lisa" farewell cake.
