Trisha Shepherd Set to Leave WRTV This Month

WRTV anchor Trisha Shepherd will leave the Indianapolis ABC affiliate this month after four years at the station.

Shepherd, who accepted a position at the Riley Children’s Foundation, will do her final broadcast on September 23. “My family’s juggling act has become more challenging recently with both my husband and I working nights, and two of our three children in school full day,” she said in a statement. “I knew it was time for a big change.”

Shepherd was hired by WRTV in September 2007 at the same time as co-anchor Todd Wallace, who left the station in 2010 after his contract was not renewed. Wallace was replaced with former ABC News correspondent Todd Connor.

“I am SO thankful for a great 4-year run at WRTV and for a new direction that will give me more time to be the kind of mom I want to be,” Shepherd wrote on her Facebook page.
