Anchor Julie Bragg Joining WTVR in Richmond

After a two-year hiatus from television, Julie Bragg will join WTVR this Summer, Richmond Magazine reports.

Bragg, who used to be an anchor for Richmond NBC-affiliate WWBT, will begin at CBS-affiliate WTVR on August 6 as the 5 and 5:30 p.m. co-anchor. She will be paired with Lorenzo Hall, who is currently a reporter and weekend anchor for the station.

“She loves the broadcasting business,” WTVR general manager Stephen Hayes said. “We believe that’s what she was meant to do.”

The 5 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts are currently anchored by Sam Brock and Stephanie Rochon. Beginning in August, Rochon will continue to anchor the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts, while Brock will be a fill-in anchor and will work on other projects for the station, according to Richmond Magazine.
