Sandra Ali has signed off from Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV after 13 years.

Ali announced the news during Sunday night’s broadcast.

“I’m grateful for all of the lifelong friendships I’ve made working at WDIV. After 13 years, I’m moving on to a wonderful, new opportunity,” she told The Detroit News. “This decision was my own. I’m excited and focused on the future. I’ve spent nearly two decades combined both at channel 2 and 4 anchoring the news, plus having the privilege of being able to share so many important stories through the years.”


“I can’t wait to share where I’m heading next with viewers soon,” she said. “I’m happy to do a follow-up once I can share more details.”

Ali started her career at WTAJ in Altoona, Pa. After two years, she moved to WJBK in Detroit. Before joining WDIV, she was an anchor at WLWT in Cincinnati.
