WCVB anchor Phil Lipof is leaving the Hearst-owned ABC affiliate on Friday, July 1.
The Boston Herald says news director Andrew Vrees told staff Lipof was being moved to a night-side reporting position, “effective immediately.”
“I’d like to thank Phil for his many contributions to NewsCenter 5 over the last couple of years and wish him well with his future endeavors,” Vrees said.
The Herald says Ed Harding or Maria Stephanos would fill-in for Lipof until Simmoneau starts Wednesday, July 6.
Lipof came to WCVB from WABC in New York in December 2013.
