Tamsen Fadal to Leave New York's PIX 11 TV
Tamsen Fadal will depart the PIX11 (WPIX-TV) primetime broadcasts, reports say.
Page Six was the first to report the news on Tuesday (November 7). Fadal has been with the station for more than 15 years, serving as one of the primetime anchors.
Fadal shared the news in a YouTube video as well this week, saying "I am changing my career at 52 years old."
Tamsen Fadal Has Had a Long Career in TV News
Fadal, a 30-year TV news veteran, first joined PIX11 in 2008.
She currently is the co-anchor of the station's 4, 5, 6, 6:30, and 10 p.m. broadcasts. She has won 12 Emmy awards, according to her biography on the station's website. It's unclear what the station has planned following Fadal's departure.
If the name sounds familiar to viewers, it's because she previously worked at WCBS-TV in New York and KYW-TV in Philadelphia.

Fadal is expected to focus full-time on a social media role, sources told PageSix.com.

The future is expected to include podcasts, books, and speaking engagements. She's expected to continue hosting "The Broadway Show" for the Broadway Channel as well. It's syndicated to TV stations nationwide.
