After his last day on air at Chicago's WMAQ, Anthony Ponce shared a video on Facebook about his new gig.

"Four months ago, I took a second job," text at the bottom of his video reads. "A job as a driver. A driver for Lyft. Yes, those pink mustache cars."

Ponce is leaving the newsroom, but he still plans to tell stories. They'll just be stories from the people he meets in the backseat of his Chevy Equinox.

In August, Ponce will launch "Backseat Rider," a podcast that features interviews with people he drives around town for Lyft.
