News Anchor Macy Egeland Leaves News 12 Long Island

Morning news anchor Macy Egeland has left News 12 Long Island, the reporter announced on Saturday.

Egeland was at the station for six years. She announced her departure on social media, noting that April 1 was her last day on the job.

“I have felt so proud to be part of this team,” Egeland said in the Facebook post. “We’ve been through a lot together, but we also shared a lot of laughs, and I’ll never forget those moments. My time with News 12 has changed my life tremendously.”

Egeland is one of several popular news anchors to leave the station or announce their imminent departure in recent weeks. Notably, veteran anchor Doug Geed, who has been with News 12 Long Island since its inception in 1986, announced he has accepted a voluntary retirement package and will depart later this year. 

Longtime anchors Danielle Campbell and Andrew Ehinger, reporters at News 12 Long Island for 25 and 23 years, respectively, have also accepted retirement packages from Altice USA, News 12’s parent company. Both have already left the station.

“I loved telling stories on Long Island and I am proud to have met so many interesting people along the way,” Ehinger said. “I’m humbled to have won several Emmy and other awards and could never have done any of this without the amazing staff at News 12 Long Island.”

News 12 Long Island Meteorologist Meredith Garofalo also left the station in March.
