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. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
