After 40 years at WWL-TV Sally-Ann Roberts set to retire
NEW ORLEANS- After 40 years as a journalist, WWL-TV morning news anchor Sally-Ann Roberts announced Wednesday she will retire from Eyewitness News at the end of February.
Roberts joined the staff of WWL-TV on March 31, 1977, the same week as her morning co-anchor, Eric Paulsen, WWL-TV reports.
"I appreciate the time that I spent here, the friends that I made, and this wonderful community,” Roberts said. “After much thought and prayer, I decided that it’s time to begin a new chapter in my life. I don’t know what the future holds but I look forward to continuing to serve this community in the years to come and spend more time with my grandchildren.”
Roberts will anchor her last newscast on Feb. 28.
