BURLINGTON (AP) -- Sera Congi
, a news co-anchor and reporter at WCAX-TV
, will leave the station next week to work for a CBS-owned station in Boston.Congi, 32, who has been a reporter at WCAX since 1994, will sign off at the end of the 6 p.m. newscast March 25 before moving on to WBZ-TV, Channel 4 in Boston in April.She will be a general assignment reporter for WBZ.
"I'm a little nervous," Congi
said Tuesday afternoon about her
jump from the 91st-largest television market in the nation to the sixth.
, a native of New York City, said she
met in October with the Boston station's news director, but there was no job opening then.She
said the station recently called her
with an offer for the freelance job.
While the job means she
is technically not a staff reporter, Congi
said there is a chance she
could become a staff reporter should an opening occur.
"I guess I've always thought about it," Congi
said."I've always wanted to move on, but life is so good here."She's
excited about the move, but is leaving with mixed emotions.
"It's hard to say goodbye to Channel 3 and to Vermont because I've been treated so well here," Congi
