Monica Malpass Leaving WPVI Philadelphia
Veteran anchor/reporter Monica Malpass announced her intent to leave ABC-owned WPVI Philadelphia (DMA 4), signing off Wednesday during the 5 p.m. newscast after more than three decades of reporting in Philadelphia.
Malpass, the mother of three boys, said that she is looking forward to exploring potential national and international opportunities and assessing what is best for her family and her career.
“I have decided to move on, but it’s with mixed emotions that I leave after more than 31 years,” Monica said.
Malpass joined WPVI in January of 1988 as a reporter-anchor. Most recently, she co-anchored the 5 p.m. newscast with Rick Williams (starting in 2003). She was also a host of the WPVI political roundtable program Inside Story.
Prior to her arrival in Philadelphia, Monica worked as an anchor-reporter at WXII Winston-Salem, N.C.; and as an anchor-reporter at WCHL-AM in Chapel Hill, N.C.
