Darieth Chisolm, co-anchor of WPXI's 11 p.m. news and a reporter for the station, will be leaving her post soon to spend more time with her family, she says.

Chisolm's only child — son Tre Tarpley, 17 — will be a senior at Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School this year, and she wants to spend more time with him.

“It's a priceless time, and he'll be gone from us soon,” the Jefferson Hills resident said.

Also, Chisolm runs two thriving businesses, as a distributor for It Works! Global, which sells toning body wraps, and as the owner of Fullbody Fitness Club in Brentwood. She joined It Works! Global 14 months ago, and has run the studio for two years.

“I have very busy and expanding businesses and they're taking up a lot of my time, so it's time to open up a new chapter in my life,” Chisolm says. “After playing superwoman for two years, I realized that … it's time to fly in another direction.”

Chisolm, who joined the station in 1993 and took a four-year hiatus between 2000-04, plans to remain highly involved in the Pittsburgh community, with speaking engagements and community events.

Her last day will come between late August and late September. The station will begin a search for her replacement immediately.

“Darieth's a remarkable talent who has been key to our success at 11 p.m.,” news director Mike Oliveira said in a statement. “We're going to miss her, but we wish her the best going forward.”
