Hill and WWL president and general manager Tod Smith announced the news at a staff meeting Wednesday. Hill will anchor her last newscast on April 4 and will remain with WWL to produce documentaries and other special projects after she steps down from the news desk.
“Angela has been such an important and beloved part of our lives for so long, it will be emotional for all of us to watch her sign off from the anchor desk,” Smith said in a statement. “But the station is thrilled to be able to give her the time and resources to embark on this new chapter of her amazing career to do what she does best – tell people’s stories.”
“This city and this station have given me so much over the past 38 years, which is part of the reason I have tried to give back in many different ways,” Hill said. “I treasure the opportunities I have had and look forward to even more still to come.”
