Luke Burbank, co-host of NPR's groundbreaking Bryant Park Project, is returning to Seattle.
He says he needs to spend more time with his family.
In a video , Burbank, a Seattle native, and Nathan Hale alum announced his decision to quit New York and his $4000 a month crappy apartment to spend more time with his daughter, Addie, who will be 14 in February.
"Living 3000 miles aways from your kid really sucks; you miss her all the time; wonder if you have your priorities straight. All this makes your getting up at 3a.m.particularly unpleasant."
Luke will stay on at BPP until mid-December.
