Cydney Long Leaves WCAU After 12 Years

By Kevin Eck 

Cydney Long left Philadelphia NBC owned station WCAU after 12 years on Friday.

Long announced the move on social media saying she was “setting down the mic.”

“After devoting 27 years to my career in TV News, Friday was my last day at NBC10,” she wrote. “Through all the seasons, and snowstorms and hurricanes, and floods and ‘breaking news’ both happy and sad, and dozens of sources and connections and ohh..hairstyles and colors lol…I’ve simply met The MOST AMAZING People!
It has truly been an honor and a privilege to tell your stories and to serve my native South Jersey, and beyond. It has shaped my life and been impactful in so many ways.”


Long said she was excited about “new opportunities and adventures” and was staying in Philadelphia, but didn’t say where she was heading.

She started working at WCAU in March 2011. Before that, she worked at CBS owned station KYW from 2001 to 2011.
