Bloomberg TV and “Street Smart” anchor Lisa Murphy parted ways last week, TVNewser has learned.
“Given some of the recent changes in Lisa’s personal life and the recent changes here at Bloomberg, we mutually decided this would be an appropriate time to part ways,” a Bloomberg spokesperson said. “We wish Lisa all the best.”
Bloomberg TV cut 30 staffers last month in preparation for the network’s shift to a digital newsroom, although the spokesperson said Murphy’s departure was unrelated to those layoffs.
There is no word on future plans for Murphy, who joined Bloomberg in October 2010 from the Fox-owned local station in New York. Going forward, a rotation of Bloomberg anchors will join Trish Regan and Adam Johnson on “Street Smart,” which airs daily from 3-5pmET.

Elsewhere on cable:
Regan sees the two-hour show — which airs from 3pm-5pmET, encompassing the daily closing bell — as a “very fast-paced, very market-driven show that’s about making money and preserving what you have,” she tells TVNewser.
Regan is a former CNBC anchor who thought “for a long time” about the right place for her. A major attraction of Bloomberg TV, she says, was the opportunity to report on the financial and economic topics that interest her the most.
“We’re able to break financial news unlike any other — we have no rival in that sense,” she says. “To that point, it gave me the chance to drill down into what I enjoy talking about more than anything else. There’s nothing I would rather do — even on a Saturday night — than to debate the direction of the economy, and debate the future of the markets.”
Regan also pointed to Bloomberg’s commitment to international news as a selling point. She says global reporting is something she looks forward to — especially in Europe, where she sees the financial crisis as a mirror for what happened to the U.S. in 2008.
