Ana Garcia is moving back to the investigative team full-time. The new 6 p.m. anchor on Channel 4 is Lucy Noland, recently imported from Houston. She starts tonight. "Lucy is a vibrant anchor with a terrific on-air presence,” KNBC vice president and news director Vickie Burns said in a statement. “She is a skilled journalist who will continuously engage viewers and deliver stories that matter.” Reported at TV Spy and TV News Check.
* Updating this part:
Burns is apparently shaking things up since she arrived, judging by the emails and comments coming out of Burbank. A pet project she brought with her from New York, Daily Connection, didn't work out. It ran at noon Monday through Friday on KNBC but was nixed by Comcast. Same for Nonstop News on KNBC's digital channel, says a station source: "It had more people working on it than watching it."
