Yes, she apparently has a very London-centric lifestyle and didn't want to give that up. She'll be back on the show while it is in Olympics mode, but then she will move on to anchoring BBC One bulletins as well as hosting a show on BBC Radio.
The BBC's entire sports department has also moved up to Manchester, with all their sports news bulletins and other programmes coming from new facilities there. CBBC, Their children's department, several radio stations and BBC Three will also be located there.
I believe all remaining programmes will stay in London, but rather than being scattered around the city they will be consolidated into new London headquarters currently nearing completion, with BBC World News scheduled to be broadcasting from new studios there before the Olympics begins. Their national programmes will follow afterwards.
