Last week our community cried out for the return of Vicky the Robot and Current News, and in response I posted some details about the return of "bumps to TV" on the Current.com blog. We're still working hard on these and when we're ready to update, you'll read it here first.
The sad part? Vicky won't be returning to the airwaves alongside our "bumps to TV" for various reasons. We're going to miss her dearly, but I'll have you know, the split was amicable. When we approached her with the news of our intended plan, Vicky surprisingly replied:
We honestly had no idea how hard Current:News was for her. Her reaction to the news definitely shed some light on the situation, and the more we discussed it the more this change made sense for everyone involved.
As she mentioned, Vicky is going to take some time out for herself. She's planned a trip to tour Europe, and she might even do some self-upgrading. We're sad to see her go, but this isn't the end for Vicky and Current. She's agreed to check in every once in a while via Facebook, and she plans to keep a close eye on the re-launch of our "bumps to TV." She's invested in it, and wants to see it all work out.
So, here is where you guys come in. Let's send Vicky off with some love directly from the Current community. We've set up a group for Vicky specifically, titled "Current [hearts] Vicky." Head over there, submit a webcam, and tell her what you think. Let's send her off in style.
