Magee Hickey / WPIX 11
Magee Hickey is known for her bright red hair, her warmth and her bubbly personality. This Emmy Award-winning reporter has covered most of the big stories in the tri-state area in the past 25 years and she is thrilled to be one of the newest members of the PIX 11 News family. Magee first worked at WNEW and WABC. At WNBC, she was the first anchor of the highly successful Weekend Today in New York program. And her first co-anchor was this new guy in town, Matt Lauer! Magee spent the last decade on the pre-dawn patrol at WCBS, getting up to 2 am to cover the news of the day. That schedule also allowed her time to raise her two daughters and to care for her aging and ailing parents. Magee is the quintessential baby boomer sandwich generation worker bee, trying to juggle many roles: wife, mother, daughter, tv news reporter and cabaret singer!
