After almost five years in Pittsburgh, WPXI reporter Damany Lewis is headed south.

The veteran news man posted the announcement on Facebook on Saturday morning stating that he will become a Monday through Friday anchor for WSOC, an ABC affiliate in Charlotte, N.C.

It wasn’t immediately clear when his last day will be at WPXI.

In the note, Lewis described the move as a “TREMENDOUS career opportunity which will also be a EXCEPTIONAL family move.”

Lewis and his wife have two children, according to his profile on WPXI’s website.

He added that the Lewis family is “saddened” to leave their lives behind in Pittsburgh.

“We can honestly say the journey through Pittsburgh has been fulling beyond our hearts content and it’s an experience we will always cherish and embrace,” the note concluded.

Lewis, who is a Chicago native — the South Side, as he likes to point out — has been a journeyman in the business, starting his career in Champaign, Ill. before making stops in Tallahassee, Fla., Jacksonville, Fla., Winston Salem, N.C., Sacramento, Calif. and Pittsburgh.

He accumulated 10 years of broadcast experience before joining WPXI, according to the profile.

While at WPXI, he traveled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to cover the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.

Lewis is an alumnus of the historically black institution Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, which is also known as Florida A&M or FAMU.

He also served as a member of Pittsburgh Black Media Federation.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
