Boston Reporter Heather Hegedus Leaving TV News

By Kevin Eck 

Heather Hegedus has announced that she is leaving Boston Fox station WFXT after 11 years.

“After 23 years as a journalist & 11 years as an Anchor/Reporter here in Boston, I’ve made the difficult decision to leave news,” she wrote on Facebook, adding that she was given another opportunity she “simply couldn’t pass up.”

There’s no word what that opportunity is.


Hegedus started her career at WIVT in Binghamton, N.Y. and has also worked at WSYR in Syracuse. Before joining WTNH in 2012, she worked at WFSB in Hartford, Ct.
