Couple of updates to previous stories from the local TV news sector.

"After two years with NBC4 Southern California, Lucy Noland has decided to leave the station to spend more time with her family. We are grateful for Lucy’s steadfast dedication and contributions to NBC4 and wish her the very best as she pursues a new chapter in her life,” a KNBC spokesperson said in a statement, per TVSpy. “Lucy’s last day is Friday and a permanent replacement for the noon newscast has not been determined at this time.” Noland came from Houston in 2011 and anchored at noon and 6 p.m. until she was replaced on the evening show last month by Colleen Williams. FTVLive reported last month that Noland was probably not going to be renewed.

And Fox 11 colleague Araksya Karapetyan tweeted today that "Good Day LA" entertainment anchor Julie Chang came out of surgery and that a benign brain tumor was removed. Host Steve Edwards announced on the show on Monday that Chang would be on medical leave for awhile after the tumor was discovered during treatment for a surfing injury.
