NOLA Life Stories: Angela Hill's Path To The Anchor Chair

May 7, 2015

For over 38 years, Angela Hill served as anchor for the most popular news channel in New Orleans, WWL-TV. She got her start, however, in smaller market stations in Texas in the early 1970's. At that time, having the news delivered by a solitary male anchor was still the industry model, but that was about to change.

In less than six months Angela Hill was promoted from consumer reporter to co-anchor, a move that station officials probably had in mind all along. She became a trusted newswoman and captured the community's heart with her romance and eventual marriage to her co-anchor, Garland Robinette.
