WRTV reporter leaving station after 23 years

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.
