Former WNYW consumer reporter Arnold Diaz is joining rival WPIX, Tribune’s CW affiliate in New York City. Diaz will join Mary Murphy and Howard Thompson to round out a newly-formed investigative unit at WPIX.
The news comes on the heels of Fox-owned WNYW shuttering its consumer investigative unit — and getting rid of Diaz — in January.
“Howard and Mary have built their reputations on helping right wrongs. Now with the addition of Arnold Diaz, who has a storied career as an investigative consumer reporter, we strengthen PIX11’s goal of keeping our viewers informed,” WPIX news director Mark Effron said in a statement.
The investigative unit will be overseen by producer Noreen Lark. Diaz’s first official day at the station will be March 31.
