Carberg has been reassigned to the station’s specialties/enterprise team and will be reporting on topics including health and consumer issues, vice president of news Matt Piacente said Thursday.
“Enterprise reporting is where it’s at and we want to use Lisa’s knowledge and credibility in those areas,” said Piacente. “She knows the market and we want to take advantage of it.”
The 47-year-old Carberg began working at NBC Ct in 1995, leaving in 1999 for the Fox News Channel, returning again in 2002 as a reporter and weekend anchor. She became the evening anchor with Keisha Grant, Gerry Brooks and ultimately with Brad Drazen on the 5 and 5:30 newscasts
. “I love NBC Connecticut, it’s where I’ve proudly spent 15 years of my career,” said Carberg. “The station has been wonderful and flexible with my family and my commute from the shoreline and I am grateful for that,” she said.” I work with a great team and I look forward to continuing to put out a good product for our viewers every day.”
Piacente said anchor/reporter Kerri-Lee Mayland, who anchors the network’s 11 a.m. daily broadcast, will be sitting in Carberg’s anchor spot for now. She will continue to anchor the 11 a.m. program, Piacente said.
News at 6 and 11 p.m. will stay the same with Gerry Brooks and returning-from-maternity-leave Keisha Grant sharing the anchor duties.
