Her outspoken support for families of people with special needs has earned her recognition within the local community. But recently, Callihan Marshall announced she is leaving WSYR-TV in March 2023. Naturally, NewsChannel 9 viewers want to know where she is going and if she is continuing in the news industry. Find out what Callihan Marshall said about her exit from NewsChannel 9 WSYR.

Callihan Marshall’s Education and Career

Callihan Marshall earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Plattsburgh and an associate’s degree from The New School of Radio and Television. In college, she also interned at CBS News in Schenectady and worked at the campus media station.

Marshall’s first job out of college was in 2014 as a reporter and multimedia journalist at a Nexstar Broadcasting Group CBS affiliate in Grand Junction, Colorado. After two years, she returned to New York in 2016.

For four years, she was a weekend anchor and reporter at Utica’s WKTV NewsChannel 2. At the peak of the presidential elections, she covered Donald Trump’s visit to Oneida County and was on the ground reporting during severe weather.

From there, Marshall joined NewsChannel 9 WSYR in December 2020. And since then, she’s been a reporter and anchor during the weekend newscasts.


Callihan Marshall Leaves WSYR-TV

On Sunday, her official social media pages revealed that Callihan Marshall is leaving WSYR-TV and the broadcasting business. Her last day on air on News Channel 9 was on March 19. And, of course, her colleagues at News Channel 9 aired a special farewell montage during her final newscast.

After signing off, Marshall said she is transitioning to a more “normal” life. She started in the industry in 2014 at the age of 22, and after almost a decade, she was ready to leave the industry’s hectic schedules behind.

Although it’s unlikely that she is joining another news station, Marshall did hint that she has something in the works. But whatever’s next for her, it will undoubtedly give her more time for her loved ones.

Family is very important to Callihan Marshall. And she is especially close to her sister, Briahna.

Briahna has a chromosomal disorder called Smith Magenis Syndrome (SMS), a cause that is very close to Marshall. She dedicates her time to PRISMS, which aids families of people with SMS, and uses her platform to spread awareness of the condition. Her work in this sphere also earned admiration from her followers online.
