Castro has worked as a weather anchor for CBS’ “The Early Show” and ABC’s “Good Morning America.” She was the traffic reporter for WPIX when the station launched its morning newscasts in 2001.
“Marysol’s experience on-air, both locally and nationally, is a tremendous asset to PIX11 News. Our viewers have watched Marysol grow up here on PIX11 and we are happy to have her back where she belongs,” WPIX vice president and news director Mark Effron said in a statement.
Castro will co-anchor alongside Dan Mannarino, who gets a promotion to anchor after two years with WPIX, beginning September 9.
