Veteran WRTV-TV Channel 6 media personality Stacia Matthews said she is leaving the Indianapolis station after a 23-year run.

Matthews said in an e-mail that her last day at WRTV will be Nov. 30. She said she’ll start Dec. 3 as a public relations manager for the Indiana Spine Group.

Her new work schedule will allow her to pursue a master’s degree in public health, a longtime dream, Matthews said.

Matthews joined WRTV in 1989 as a general assignment reporter after working at TV stations in Lynchburg, Va., and Nashville, Tenn., according to WRTV's website.

Matthews’ announcement that she’s leaving the station follows last week's departure of news director Kevin Finch.

  • Good Move
    ISG need a good PR Director. They triple book (as they informed me in 2006), and you wait for 2-3 hrs to at an appt you made 2-3 months prior. One we were forgotten about in an examination room. Dr. S_s_o is an arrogant little man who has a God given talent, but thinks he is God.And don't tell him his surgery didn't work, even if the MRI confirms it. He'll go after your home, your money, would probably take your first born if the courts wold let him. After my surgery @ ISG I was off worse physically, and 30K lighter in the bank acct (INS decided not to cover it), I really enjoyed you television work and reporting expertise. Good luck, Staci.
  • Leaving sinking ship?
    Stacia Matthews leaves after 23 years. Grace Trahan leaves after 18 years. Dan Spehler and Ray Cortopassi now on Fox59...WRTV can't keep anyone, no stability. What's going on there?
  • Best wishes!
    Very best wishes to Stacia as she embarks on a new career. She is an outstanding reporter and will be excellent in her new role for the Indiana Spine Group. Very sorry to see her leave RTV6, but wish her nothing but the best!

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  2. to be the big fish in the little pond of IRL midwest racin' when yer up against Racin' Gardner

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
