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. Now if he'd just stay there...

  2. Daniel - what about the many US citizens who do NOT follow what the Bible teaches? The Hindus, Jews, Muslims and others who are all American citizens entitled to all rights as Americans?? This issue has NOTHING to do with "What the Bible says..." Keep all Churches separate from State! Pence's ongoing idiocy continues to make Indiana look like a backwards, homophobic state in the eyes of our nation. Can't we move on to bigger issues - like educating our kids?

  3. 1. IBJ should link to the referenced report. We are in the age of electronic media...not sharing information is lazy. Here is a link http://www.in.gov/gov/files/Blue_Ribbon_Panel_Report_July_9_2014.pdf 2. The article should provide more clarity about the make-up of this panel. The commenters are making this item out to be partisan, it does not appear the panel is partisan. Here is a list of the panel which appears to be balanced with different SME to add different perspectives http://www.in.gov/activecalendar/EventList.aspx?view=EventDetails&eventidn=138116?formation_id=189603 3. It suggests a by-pass, I do not see where this report suggests another "loop". 4. Henry, based on your kneejerk reaction, we would be better off if you moved to another state unless your post was meant as sarcasm in which case I say Well Done. 5. The article and report actually indicates need to improve rail and port infrastructure in direct contradiction to Shayla commentary. Specifically, recommendation is to consider passenger rail projects... 6. People have a voice with their elected officials. These are suggestions and do not represent "crony capitalism", etc. The report needs to be analyzed and the legislature can decide on priorities and spending. Don't like it, then vote in a new legislature but quit artificially creating issues where there are none! People need to sift through the politics and provide constructive criticism to the process rather than making uninformed comments in a public forum based on misinformation. IBJ should work harder to correct the record in these forums when blatant errors or misrepresentations are made.

  4. Joe ... Marriage is defined in the Bible ... it is mentioned in the Bible often. Marriage is not mentioned once in the US or Indiana Constitution ...

  5. Daniel - Educate me please: what does the Bible have to do with laws? If the government wasn't in the business of marriage to begin with, then it wouldn't have to "define" marriage at all. Marriage could be left as a personal, religious, or otherwise unregulated action, with no ties to taxes, legal status, etc. Then people could marry whomever they want, and all this silliness would go away. Remember to vote Libertarian in November.
