Longtime investigative reporter Lu Ann Cahn has announced that she will be retiring from WCAU, the NBC owned Philadelphia station. Cahn joined WCAU in 1987 as a general assignment reporter and spent the next 27 years at the station, reporting on everything from the Olympics to her personal battle with breast cancer, at the age of 35.
“Lu Ann is a woman who strikes fear in the hearts of scammers and evil-doers, hope in the hearts of breast cancer patients and confidence in the hearts of those longing to re-boot their lives,” said Anzio Williams, WCAU’s vice president of news.
“We wish Lu Ann the same high level of success she shared with us during her years here at NBC10,” Eric Lerner, president and general manager, added.
Cahn released her first book last year, I Dare Me: How I Rebooted and Recharged My Life by Doing Something New Every Day, based on her blog, which WCAU says is the “foundation for the beginning of her next great adventure.”
Her last day at WCAU is December 19.
