Former WPIX Anchor Jackie Hyland Joins WRAL

Jackie Hyland (pictured, right) who was cut loose from New York City’s WPIX in March when her contract was not renewed, will debut September 27 as evening anchor on WRAL, the CBS-affiliate in Raleigh-Durham.

Hyland’s addition to the news team was announced by the station along with a handful of changes to the talent lineup. Hyland will be paired with longtime WRAL anchor Gerald Owens on the 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts; she will replace anchor Debra Morgan, who will take over the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts from Pam Saulsby.

Saulsby, who has been with the station since 1991, is leaving to pursue “other opportunities outside of the station,” according to the WRAL release. She will continue to co-anchor the noon newscast until later this fall, but her final evening newscasts will be later this week. Read more

New York Veteran Jackie Hyland Out at WPIX

Veteran anchor-reporter Jackie Hyland has been cut by WPIX. The New York CW-affiliate decided not to renew her contract at the end of March.

Hyland had been hired in 2009 as a weekend anchor but got lost in an on-air shuffle made by news director Bill Carey, who brought in Jodi Applegate to be the station’s marquee anchor and bumped previous weeknight anchor Jim Watkins to weekends.

“Right now, I’m spending time with my girls, and pursuing other opportunities,” Hyland told TVSpy sister site FishbowlNY recently.

Hyland is a veteran of the New York market, having made stops at Cablevision’s News 12 and ABC News NOW before recently joining WPIX. It was her second stint with the station. Read more at FishbowlNY
