But unfortunately, John had to leave his job to start his own business just 2 weeks after Sandra joined.

Years later, Illinois born Sandra was offered a job at Bloomberg Television in New York. Since John was in Chicago, they had to go through long distance relationships – more phone calls and less physical meets.

After around a year, she joined Fox, which showed signs that she had to settle in New York itself.
