NBC5 reporter Ellen Goldberg calls it a day -- and a night


NBC5 reporter Ellen Goldberg, a veteran of six years on the nightside beat, has decided to leave the Fort Worth-based station to try something new.

“After 6 great years, I have decided to leave KXAS to pursue other opportunities,” she said in a message to station staffers Tuesday. “I am grateful to KXAS and the talented team of professionals I have worked alongside. Many of you are like family to me, so that made the decision extremely difficult. Dallas is home for me now, so I’m not going anywhere. I’m excited about several future opportunities, but my immediate plans are to take a little time to enjoy life.”

Goldberg joined NBC5 in March 2007 from KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, NM. The Tulane University grad had been a staple on the station’s 10 p.m. newscasts as a resourceful and dogged general assignments reporter.

NBC5’s vice president of news, Susan Tully, said that Goldberg’s last official day was Monday of this week.

“Ellen wants to take the next steps toward growing her career and we wish her all the success she deserves,” Tully said in a memo. “Ellen covered and broke many stories in her tenure with us.”
