“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.
