After Four Years Away, Anchor Karen Swensen Returns to New Orleans’ WWL

Karen Swensen, who has been working as a morning anchor for Comcast’s NECN since 2006, is set to return to New Orleans’ WWL, where she spent 12 years as an anchor and reporter.

“We pride ourselves on being a family here,” said Mike Hoss, WWL’s nighttime anchor and interim news director, “which makes it incredibly exciting to welcome back someone who meant so much to our family, to this station and this city during her time here.”

Hoss shared the anchor desk with Swensen for four years.  She is replacing Hoss’s former co-anchor, Lucy Bustamante, who left the station in October in order to work closer to her husband, a Navy SEAL stationed in Virginia Beach.

During her time in New Orleans, Swensen was awarded six Edward R. Murrow Regional Awards for investigative journalism, writing, and feature reporting.  She also won two Emmys while at WWL and is excited to be back at the station.
