WBRZ says farewell to Kylie Dixon, welcomes Malary Pullen
BATON ROUGE - A new face officially joined the WBRZ team Thursday morning as journalists and viewers bid farewell to a familiar one.
Beginning Thursday, Malary Pullen became the new co-anchor of WBRZ's long-running morning news program, 2une-In. Pullen joins John "JP" Pastorek on the news desk and interact daily with Meteorologist Josh Eachus, live traffic reporter Ashley Fruge and live news reporter Michael Vinsanau.
Pullen takes over for Kylie Dixon, who is returning to Oklahoma to work in her family's business. Dixon has been an important part of the WBRZ news team since August 2014. The WBRZ team gathered earlier this week to wish Dixon, her husband and their new baby good luck.
Pullen, a Louisiana native, moved to the Baton Rouge area from Jackson, MS, where she was an anchor for a local TV station. Pullen is newly engaged to her fiance, who works in the Baton Rouge-area chemical industry.
Watch 2une-In weekdays from 5 a.m. - 7 a.m. and breaking news reports from the morning show team on Facebook Live, WBRZ.com and Good Morning America each weekday morning.
