Weekend Anchor Rachel Wulff Leaving WDSU

rachel wulffWDSU weekend anchor Rachel Wulff has opted not to renew her contract with the New Orleans NBC affiliate, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports:

She said Friday (June 27) that she was leaving WDSU on good terms, and cited the station’s “Neighbor or Nuisance” series as a reporting highlight of her time there.

“I feel privileged to have worked with some amazing journalists here who are committed to the community — uncovering corruption, educating the public and providing much-needed information when disaster strikes,” she said. “I am proud to have given a voice to many struggling to return post-Katrina.”

Jonathan Shelley, WDSU’s news director, said there would be no immediate announcement about Wulff’s replacement.
