WGHP Names New Morning Anchor

Julie Grant will join Brad Jones, Cindy Farmer, and Kerry Charles for the morning news on Greensboro, NC, FOX affiliate WGHP.

“Julie has the beauty, brains and genuine charm that could have gotten her into much larger TV markets,” Karen Koutsky, vice president of News for WGHP, said in a statement. “We know viewers are going to love her.”

Grant comes to WGHP from Pittsburgh, where she was an assistant district attorney in Allegheny County. Before that she was a morning anchor and a reporter for WTOV in Steubenville, OH. She replaces Katie Nordeen who moved to evenings in January. Her first day will be Monday, June 10.

WFMY, WGHP Create Competition at 4:30 a.m.

There will soon be a three-way race at 4:30 a.m. in the Greensboro–High Point–Winston-Salem market.

This week CBS-affiliate WFMY added an extra half-hour to its “Good Morning Show” and Fox-affiliate WGHP is set to expand its morning newscast to 4:30 on Monday.  NBC-affiliate WXII has been starting at 4:30 since 2010.

In addition to expanding to 4:30 this week, WFMY added a new face to its morning team.  Reporter Meghan Packer has joined the established crew of Ed Matthews, Rosemary Plybon, and Tracey McCain, kicking off the show at 4:30.

WGHP’s expanded newscast will continue to be helmed by the longtime anchor duo of Brad Jones and Cindy Farmer.
