Former WRAL anchor Pam Saulsby to join NBC-17

Bookmark and Share

WNCN announced today that former WRAL anchor Pam Saulsby will join the NBC-17 team in September.

According to the station, Saulsby will join current anchor Penn Holderness and meteorologist Wes Hohenstein on the 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts. She will also produce reports for the newscasts and the nbc17.com website.

Saulsby was an anchor at WRAL in Raleigh for 20 years before leaving the station last October when WRAL revamped their studio and made other on-air changes. Debra Morgan took Saulsby's place on 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts, and Jackie Hyland was brought in to anchor other spots with Gerald Owens.

Since leaving WRAL, Saulsby has continued her second career as a singer and served as Artist in Residence at St. Augustine's College.

Saulsby's official NBC-17 debut is currently planned for Sept. 17, 2012.

They better increase their "wig" budget. 


Did making that nasty and unnecessary comment make you feel better as a person? 

Actually it did

Actually it did.  Thank you for asking.

Saulsby Fans Rejoice

Katie Couric has gone from NBC to ABC, and now Pam Saulsby has gone from CBS's WRAL to NBC-17. The big starts are like constellations in the sky--you just have to keep bringing out your telescope to see which planets they are hanging out with.

But wait, if Pam Saulsby is now going to be broadcasting the news on NBC-17, does this mean that Greg Fishel can still audition for tuba in her jazz ensemble?

Love Pam and so happy to see where she will be.  I was so upset when she left WRAL, and I bet lots of people feel that way. I for one will be tuning in to NBC 17 to see her. I wish her well in her new venture.
