We say goodbye and happy retirement to longtime Newswatch 16 anchor, reporter, and producer Marisa Burke.  Marisa has been part of the WNEP family for a generation, long enough to have made a batch of memories for all of us.

    Marissy, will miss you rocking daily changes in coloring/styling to your boy cut, frumpiness, clownish red lip stick, investigative reporting on local pedophiles, and pandering to/promoting convicted politicians.

    She has been my favorite for over 15 years. I was kinda surprised that she was leaving, but when she said good-bye I understand. Hope she has a good life and great memories. Thanks for all you have done.
