Alison Starling to leave 7News in D.C.

by | Nov 4, 2023

A staple of local journalism, Alison Starling is stepping away from the anchor desk at 7News after 20 years, reports WTOP

Starling made the announcement that her last day on WJLA’s air would be Nov. 22 in a social media post. The post said that Starling wants to focus more of her attention on her family, including her young daughters.

“I was passionate and still am passionate about covering news in D.C. … But my gut is telling me that I’m never going to get this time back with my kids and it’s time to make a change,” Starling told WTOP. “So, 20 years felt like a good round number to step away and make it official.”

Starling and her husband Peter Alexander of NBC News have two daughters, 10-year-old Ava, and 8-year-old Emma. She recalled Emma’s reaction when she told her she’d be leaving the local ABC News affiliate.

“She was like, ‘Wait, are you going to pick me up at school?’” Starling recalled.
