Bloomberg TV and “Street Smart” anchor Lisa Murphy parted ways last week, TVNewser has learned.
“Given some of the recent changes in Lisa’s personal life and the recent changes here at Bloomberg, we mutually decided this would be an appropriate time to part ways,” a Bloomberg spokesperson said. “We wish Lisa all the best.”
Bloomberg TV cut 30 staffers last month in preparation for the network’s shift to a digital newsroom, although the spokesperson said Murphy’s departure was unrelated to those layoffs.
There is no word on future plans for Murphy, who joined Bloomberg in October 2010 from the Fox-owned local station in New York. Going forward, a rotation of Bloomberg anchors will join Trish Regan and Adam Johnson on “Street Smart,” which airs daily from 3-5pmET.
