By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

A local TV legend in Philadelphia has left WPVI after 31 years.

Anchor-reporter Monica Malpass signed off of the 5 pm newscast on Wednesday for the last time.

“I have decided to move on, but it’s with mixed emotions that I leave after more than 31 years,” Monica stated. “I have loved being your anchorwoman. This is a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. It was certainly a difficult decision to make, but I’m excited to spend more time with my young family while I choose the next great opportunity.”


Malpass says she is pursuing a number of national and international opportunities.

She joined the ABC station in 1988. You can watch a tribute video below.
