By Kevin Eck 

Lisa Patton says she’s retiring from Nashville ABC affiliate WKRN after 25 years.

“Lisa has been an invaluable member of the News 2 team, so it’s hard to imagine our newscasts without her,” said WKRN gm Steve Watt. “We are grateful to her for her years of service to the community and wish her all the best in her retirement.”

Patton started at WKRN in 1991. She started her career nearly ten years earlier as a disc jockey and later a weather caster in Knoxville, Tenn. She worked at WTVD in Raleigh-Durham before coming to WKRN.
