Tribune flagship WPIX in New York, is losing a longtime member of the team.
Reporter Lisa Mateo’s fitness business has grown to the point that she is leaving after 18 years on the Am beat.
“I came into this newsroom 18 years ago as a shy young girl with dreams of being a reporter. This station not only gave me a shot, but the opportunity to grow in so many ways…and now it’s time to use those skills toward a greater purpose,” she said in a Facebook post.
Her last day was on Friday.
