WRAL-TV Brings Back Popular Anchor Lynda Loveland

Welcome Home, LyndaThe Raleigh-Durham market clearly loves Lynda Loveland. When WRAL-TV announced her return to the anchor desk, the response was overwhelming.

Loveland will co-anchor WRAL News on FOX 50 weekday mornings 7:00 – 9:00 with Michelle Marsh. She will also report and fill-in anchor on WRAL.

It’s like she never left, really. Lynda 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’s ready to return to television.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be coming back to WRAL-TV!  Not only is the name synonymous with news excellence, but for me, it also stands for family. I can’t wait to get back in the newsroom Friday morning,” says Loveland.

Judging by the response on social media, the Raleigh-Durham market is excited to see her back on television. The facebook pages of  WRAL-TV, Fox 50, and MIX 101.5 exploded with comments of support. #WelcomeHomeLynda generated 259,561 impressions on twitter, where WRAL-TV News Director Rick Gall broke the news.
