Raleigh Anchor Announces He’s Leaving Station in Family Christmas Video

WNCN anchor Penn Holderness buried the lede in this year’s family pajama wearing rap Christmas video.

After all the signing and dancing about what the family did this year, Holderness’ wife announced in the video her anchor husband was leaving the Raleigh-Durham NBC affiliate.

“Next month he’s stepping off the anchor desk,” rapped his wife in the video. “It’s the biggest decision of his life. He’s going to quit his job and come work with his wife. We’ll be making videos just like these for politicians and companies.”

Holderness started his career in Grand Junction, CO, before working in Orlando, FL. He also hosted shows for HGTV and CSTV. According to his station bio, he was also a video essayist for ESPN and ABC in New York.

Pam Saulsby Joins WNCN as Evening Anchor

Raleigh-Durham NBC-affiliate WNCN will have a new evening co-anchor next month: Pam Saulsby, until last year was an anchor at rival station WRAL.

Saulsby signed off from WRAL last year after 20 years with the CBS-affiliate. In her new role at WNCN, she will co-anchor the 7 and 11 p.m. newscasts alongside Penn Holderness (pictured with Saulsby) and chief meteorologist Wes Hohenstein, as well as produce reports for the station.

“We are thrilled to have Pam join our team,” news director Andrea Parquet-Taylor said in a statement. “Her deep roots and passion for storytelling in this community make her an outstanding choice. Penn and Pam are a dynamic duo committed to the things that truly matter and helping people everyday.”
