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.
