Lucy Noland joins NBC4 LA as an anchor and reporter effective Monday, July 11. She comes to the station from CBS affiliate KHOU-TV in Houston, Texas, where she was the co-anchor of the station’s 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. weekday newscasts. Noland has been with KHOU since April 2007.
“Lucy is smart, warm, funny and a definite people person — all qualities that are perfect for a career in journalism. She is an engaging and dynamic anchor and reporter who brings a strong commitment to her community. We’re thrilled to welcome her to Los Angeles and to the station and know she will be a great fit to our winning team,” said NBC4 LA Vice President of News Vickie Burns.
With the hiring of Noland, NBC4 LA is extending its strong roster of anchors and reporters.
Prior to working for KHOU-TV, Noland co-hosted Good Day New York, the morning show at the Fox owned-and-operated station WNYW-TV in New York. She also briefly anchored that station’s midday newscast. Noland was with WNYW from March 2004 to March 2007. Before that, she was a weekday morning anchor and franchise reporter at WJBK-TV, the Fox owned-and-operated station in Detroit, from December 1997 to March 2004.
Noland began her career in broadcasting at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where she produced, edited and broadcasted news for the college’s radio station and was also a disc jockey. She interned for KATN-TV, the ABC affiliate in Fairbanks, Alaska, and eventually became a morning and evening news anchor at the station. She also produced, edited and reported for the station. During this time, she also produced, edited and broadcasted news for KWLF-FM in Fairbanks and additionally was a disc jockey for that radio station.
Noland left Fairbanks to join KIMO-TV, the ABC affiliate in Anchorage, where she held a number of different positions, including producer/editor, general assignment reporter and evening and late news anchor. She was then hired by ABC to join its Minority Management Training Program through San Francisco’s KGO-TV, the ABC-owned station in the Bay Area. Her position included assignments as a general assignment reporter and anchor for KFSN-TV, the ABC-owned station in Fresno, California. Here, she also filed stories for KGO-TV, including reports from the Mexico/California border on immigration. After that, she moved to Fresno’s CBS affiliate KJEO-TV as the evening weekday anchor and reporter.
Noland was born in Saigon, Vietnam. Her family — the ones who are not currently living in Vietnam — call California home. Noland has three children.
