Fox DC Weekend Anchor Leaves Station After Nearly 17 Years

By Kevin Eck 

WTTG weekend evening anchor Lauren DeMarco signed off last night after almost 17 years with the Fox-owned Washington, D.C. station.

“A big night for me as I get ready to anchor my final 10 & 11pm newscasts on @fox5dc,” she wrote on Twitter. “Nearly 17 years!! It’s been an amazing run!!

DeMarco started at WTTG in 2004 as a writer/producer. She transitioned into the reporter role after doing traffic for several local radio stations and after creating a  tech segment focused on smartphone apps for FOX 5 Morning, according to her bio, which has been removed from the station’s website.

After her last newscast, DeMarco thanked viewers for watching her over the years. Her next job will be with the Montgomery County State’s Attorney Office, she said.
