Anchor Change At NBC4
Lucy Noland has been named the 6 p.m. anchor at KNBC. Noland takes over beginning tonight for Ana Garcia, who will become a full-time investigative reporter for KNBC.
Noland has anchored at stations in several different markets. “Lucy is a vibrant anchor with a terrific on-air presence,” KNBC vice president and news director Vickie Burns said in a statement. “She is a skilled journalist who will continuously engage viewers and deliver stories that matter.”
Noland joined KNBC earlier this month after four years at Houston’s KHOU, where she co-anchored the 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. broadcasts. She has also been an anchor at WNYW in New York, WJBK in Detroit and KJEO in Fresno.
Burns is apparently shaking things up since she arrived, judging by the emails and comments coming out of Burbank. And a pet project she brought with her from New York, Daily Connection, didn't work out. It ran on KNBC's digital channel but was nixed by Comcast, says a station source: "It had more people working on it than watching it."
