Luck will replace Tanya Rivera who will launch “2 Wants to Know,” a daily show airing at 5:30 p.m. the station says “will solve viewer problems, get answers and genuinely help people in these tough times.”
Luck’s first day of anchoring the 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00 p.m. news will be Thursday, April 25.
“This news team is all about community…all about people who live and work in the Triad,” said Luck. “It feels like home. I can’t wait to serve and reconnect with folks on WFMY News 2.”
