Jeanne Burns Named Primary Anchor at WVLA

Jeanne Burns is joining WVLA, the NBC-affiliate in Baton Rouge, as the evening anchor.

It is a return to WVLA for Burns, who began her career there as anchor of the morning news breaks in the mid-1990s. Most recently, she was the morning anchor at rival WAFB, the CBS-affiliate. She signed off last year to spend more time with her family.

Burns, a former Miss Louisiana, will sign on tomorrow as the station’s 5, 6:30 and 10 p.m. anchor.

“I’ve admired Jeanne and her work for years,” news director David D’Aquin said in a statement. “I’m so excited to have the opportunity to work with her. And I know Baton Rouge will be happy to see her back on the air.”
