Melanie Hebert Says Goodbye to WWL

WWL anchor Melanie Hebert is leaving New Orleans to join her husband in Baton Rouge. The announcement, which she made on Facebook, comes a year to the day after she made her debut on the New Orleans CBS affiliate.

Hebert said she is looking forward to trying “something new, and a more family-friendly job”:

I have spent virtually all of my twenties and my early thirties in news during a significant decade for this industry and the way it operates. I’ve seen a dramatic shift in the way we communicate… and I embrace it and feel blessed to have had the experience I did in TV news for the past 11 years. I am so thankful for everyone who has been so supportive, and I know I will be able to use my broadcast journalism experience to continue to grow professionally and personally in the next phase of my life.

Hebert, who co-anchors WWL’s morning newscast, will officially sign off July 23.
