KHOU 11's Lucy Noland headed to KNBC 4 LA

Even though I am at the beach today, I have to let you know that KHOU 11 anchor Lucy Noland is going to LA's KNBC 4 as an anchor and reporter.

Statement from Philip Bruce, KHOU 11 Executive News Director: “It’s always difficult to say goodbye to a member of the family. Sadly, that’s the chore ahead of us as our own Lucy Noland prepares to take on a great new opportunity in Los Angeles. Lucy has accepted an offer from KNBC-TV, a fine shop that I know well, where she’ll be anchoring and reporting. When she joins Channel 4 in Los Angeles in early July, Lucy will be surrounded by a top-notch newsroom and some great people."

Noland came to Houston from New York's WNYW in 2007.

According to KNBC, Noland starts July 11, so catch her in Houston while you can.

On a related note, former KPRC 2 meteorologist Byron Miranda just started at KNBC a few months ago.

  1. KHOU stopped reporting news a year ago. I don't blame Noland for leaving.

  2. So sad to see her go! I loved watching her every night. What is going on at KHOU? So many changes and bad ones at that. Guess it's time to switch back to 13.

  4. Can some insiders at KHOU give us some information on what's going on over there? People are leaving. Coverage is a mess and KPRC has just about overtaken them.

    What gives?

  5. If KPRC has really overtaken KHOU, then that oddball Reverand may be on to something about the world coming to an end in October... We'll miss you Lucy. None of the local female anchors could hold a candle to you, and you were one of the best anchors all together.

  6. KHOU should consider getting one of LA's anchors.

  8. I watched channel 11 at 5pm today and the reporter was smoking a cigarette right before they went to his live shot. he was smoking on the air and someone forgot to tell him he was on live television. hysterical. mike you need to find the video and put it up. it's hilarious.

  9. I was told one time how much she made. I was like....what?....She is not worth that much money.Goodbye.

  10. I just could never understand how in the hell those anchors could make all that money.Take Dave Ward. He deserves eery penny cause he has paid his dues. But all these other flakes, Give me a break.

  11. Is any anyone going to the NABJ?

  12. Don't worry male Lucy Noland fans, there's always Casey Curry, Jennifer Reyna, Natalie Bomke, Katherine Whaley, and Daniella Guzman. Though the last one just had a baby and won't be back in months.

  13. Hey guy above me, what about Sonia Azad or Nefertiti Jaquez?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Man these journalists and TV/Radio personalities tend to move around almost just like military people. Hopefully Lucy Noland is happy in LA.

  15. Wow...the 2 anonymous posters suggested a lot of other women who we can look at...sadly, noy one is even a 5 on looks or skill. Lucy was a 10 in both. Houston men need to get their eyes checked..and KRAP Ch 2 has none even nominated for the list of hottest women.

  16. If you don't think Daniella Guzman, Dominique Sachse, and Jennifer Reyna are remotely hot, you need to improve your taste in women.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hey for the guy who suggested the Lucy Noland fans those other women...that's like if the Houston Texans move to LA and you're telling all the Texans fans to root for the Cowboys or Titans.

  18. Never understoopd the appeal some have with Sachse. She looks nearly 70 and shows the wrath of all those hard miles and surgeries. The lips are worse than what Lisa Rinna's looked like at her peak of surgery. Reyna can't speak coherently and her head's the size of a monster truck tire.

  19. Reyna's head is the size of a monster truck tire. Hank Bomke and Walt Jacquez may be good guys but they are not eye candy for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Even though it's the worst kept secret in town, why is KHOU being so tight lipped about its new 4PM newscast?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sachse looks pretty good for a woman in her 40's and Reyna's head doesn't look at all big, at least to me. Although Jacquez has big giant lips. Glad no one has anything bad to say about Bomke.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I hope one day Lucy Noland goes national and replaces Robin Meade some day (not that there's anything wrong with her). Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Dude called her "Hank Bompke"! Hilarious!

  24. I am really going to miss Lucy. She was a great anchor -- she impressed me on how quickly she learned this city.

  26. Daniella Guzman OWNS all . She is simply stunning.

  27. From the neck up and when not speaking in that monotone nasal.

  28. Man Dave Felhling and now Lucky Noland? Either there's a venomous snake in the KHOU studios or someone is blasting Justin Bieber's music in the newsroom. Something at KHOU has to be scaring people away from there.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Friend at KHOU told me the reaction to Lucy leaving.. was a resounding... who cares? She was not a nice person, don't let the looks fool you.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I was not a fan of Ms. Noland so I will likely start watching KHOU again during weekdays. I'm all for Shern-Min Chow taking over her slot if they don't plan to pair Len Cannon with Greg Hurst for all evening newscasts.

  31. Daniella Guzman is beautiful. I wish these anonymous posters had the balls to say some of these things directly to the women. Instead, they will sit behind their desks in the newsroom and eat Twinkies as they stare maliciously at women their husbands think about. Just continue to be 'ordinary' and behind the scenes. You're there for a reason.

    Anon 7/3 at 2:09: Hate to burst your bubble, but Before looking at or fantasizing about Guzman, or the typical Local 2 d-listers (dom, cindy lou freeman, nef, tasty hoagie, etc) I assure you that other women's husbands are fantasizing of Khambrel, Radar the Weather dog, Amy Davis, Rachal McNeil, Randy McElroy, the Asian weather chick, Haley the only good traffic girl on 2, Frank and even old Rocky McCullough commercials. You are very misguided, amigo.

  33. Adious to the queen of "meh"

  34. No one has mentioned the Ladies Of 13 .. Gina Gaston . Sharron Melton . Casey Curry . Sonia Azad . Ilona Carson . etc

    Hands down KTRK has the greatest concentration of fine looking ladies ..

    I like her already.
