Why Ilona Carson leaving ABC13?

Illona’s last day on set is on June 18, 2021, and her departure news is leaving many people sad already. One of the main reasons for Ilona to leave her job is her family, especially her three children. The mother of 3 now wants to fully focus on her children as children grow up so quickly she doesn’t want to miss a single thing. Every parent wants their child to grow in front of their eyes and so does Ilona. We think her choice is really good because even children want their parents, especially mothers, to be with them. They might thank her one day for this who knows.

Well her decision is not an easy one but she had to sacrifice one thing or another. Thankfully Ilona knows which is the right one and we wish her all the best.

Where will she be going after ABC13? Does she have a new job?

No, Ilona is not looking for another new job in fact it seems like Ilona is neither completely off from her old job. Because according to her she will continue to work of course only on some station projects and specials in the future which means she isn't far from the ABC13 family at all. But she will be far from people who adore watching her on-screen and viewers of the show.

Who is Ilona married to? How many children does she have?
