Loveland joins co-anchor Gerald Owens for WRAL News on FOX 50 at 4 and 10 p.m. and WRAL’s 5:30 p.m. evening news
Veteran WRAL News anchor Lynda Loveland moves from WRAL’s morning newscasts to join the station’s evening news team. Loveland takes the desk with co-anchor Gerald Owens for WRAL News on FOX 50 at 4 and 10 p.m. and WRAL’s 5:30 p.m. evening news.
“I’m thrilled to be given this new opportunity! I’ve been fortunate to work with the best morning news team for the last year and look forward to joining the best evening news team,” says Loveland. “Whichever day part I’m on, it always feels like I’m working with family. I feel very blessed!”
Loveland worked in the WRAL Newsroom for ten years before leaving the anchor desk for a morning drive co-host spot on Capitol Broadcasting Company sister radio station MIX101.5 WRAL-FM. After five years at the radio mic, she returned to television, bringing her talent and energy to the morning newscasts on WRAL and FOX 50.
“Lynda is well-known to our viewers as a talented, personable, and seasoned anchor,” said WRAL News Director Rick Gall. “We’re confident this will be a smooth transition, and her presence on these newscasts will enhance them as we move forward.”
WRAL-TV/FOX 50 Vice President and General Manager Steven D. Hammel says, “I am delighted Lynda will be co-anchoring with Gerald Owens. Her energy, personality and passion will add to the great Team we have in place.”
