Anchor Maria Stephanos will leave Boston Fox affiliate WFXT “to pursue new professional endeavors,” according to a statement released by the station Thursday.
Stephanos, who joined the station as a reporter in 1998 before moving into the anchor chair, will end nearly 18 years at the station after the 11 p.m. newscast Friday.
“I have decided it’s time for me to embark on a new adventure,” said Stephanos. “I will miss working with this extraordinary team, but I know FOX25 is in good hands and will continue to grow. I am beyond blessed, to deliver the news in the place where I grew up. New England viewers are savvy and smart and I love them for that. Thank you for making me part of your family.”
