Jennings, her health care entrepreneur husband and their twins are moving to — gasp! — suburbia.

In Broward, no less!

The ABC affiliate’s newswoman, whose cool, hip downtown style could never be mistaken for that of a soccer mom, just signed off on a deal to buy a $1.69 million-mansion in the Hawks Landing neighborhood of Plantation.

The family is moving into a 6,000-square-foot crib with six bedrooms, six bathrooms and a small home theater, according to Broward County records.

Jennings was apparently so hell-bent on moving that she and hubby Josh Salman took a steep loss on their Coconut Grove house – sold in April for $1.9 million.

That’s $200,000 less than what the couple paid for in 2005!

Jennings didn’t reply to an email asking whether she’ll miss the old Magic City.
