A reporter, anchor, and editor for KYW Newsradio for decades, Lipton’s voice is well known to KYW listeners from her “Positively Philadelphia!” reports heard Sundays and Mondays.

Before joining Newsradio, Lipton was a reporter, producer, and ultimately executive editor for CBS 3 (KYW-TV).

Longtime radio listeners in the Delaware Valley will remember her newscasts on WFIL Radio, one of the most successful “Top 40” radio stations in the country at the time, where she was the station’s first female anchor.

In 2013 she was named “senior editor” at KYW Newsradio in recognition the expertise she brings to the newsroom and our broadcasts.
