As our friends at FishbowlNY reported this morning, Ann Mercogliano has departed WNBC, the New York City NBC O&O, for WCBS,  the New York City CBS O&O.

Mercogliano was a reporter for WNBC’s afternoon lifestyle show, “New York Live.” She occasionally reported for the weekend newscasts. She will join WCBS on August 1 as a general assignment reporter.

“I am [leaving],” she wrote to one fan. “But just going down the street. Stay tuned.”
