WFAA medical reporter Janet St. James is leaving the Dallas ABC affiliate.
St. James is credited by news director Carolyn Mungo for leading the station’s Ebola coverage. Her last day will be Tuesday, March 17.
“After nearly a quarter of a century in television news, and almost 19 years at WFAA, Janet St. James has decided to leave the biz,” Mungo told staff in a memo. “I don’t think she gave it enough time personally, but that’s just meJ.”
St. James is going to work in the health care industry. She started at the station as a general assignment reporter in 1996.
