Lucy Noland joined the FOX 29 News team in June 2014 as a co-anchor for the evening newscasts at five, six and ten. She also anchors the FOX 29 News at 11.
Prior to joining FOX 29, Lucy anchored the noon and 6pm newscasts at KNBC in Los Angeles. From 2007 to 2011 she anchored the 5pm and 10pm newscasts at KHOU11 News in Houston, TX.
Lucy was part of the FOX family before, when she co-hosted “Good Day New York,” the morning show at the FOX owned-and operated station WNYW-TV. Before that, she was a weekday morning anchor and franchise reporter for six years at WJBK-TV, the FOX O&O in Detroit, MI.
ABC Network hired Lucy as its inaugural participant in its Minority Management Training Program. She filed in-depth reports at KGO-TV, the ABC O&O in San Francisco, but was based in Fresno where she also reported and anchored. She covered everything from immigration, where her photographer and her trudged through sewage-drenched mudflats separating Tijuana from San Diego under the cover of night; to water-rights issues, which took them into hydro-electric projects deep underground and into the fertile fields of the irrigated San Joaquin Valley.
Lucy’s professional career began at KATN-TV, the ABC affiliate in Fairbanks, Alaska. She shot, wrote and edited her own stories and anchored various newscasts. Some of the stories she worked on early in her career afforded her the opportunity to buzz Mt. McKinley (Denali to most Alaskans) in a C-130 and refuel an A-10 “Warthog” from a gas-station in the sky, a KC-135 Stratotanker. Lucy worked the boom and refueled the A-10 herself-- imagine the pilot’s surprise!
After transferring to KIMO-TV in Anchorage, she covered the eruptions of Mt. Redoubt, then Mt. Spurr, guiding Alaskans through the ash-covered days that followed. NASA invited her on a journey into Mt. Spurr’s crater post-eruption) to test out its prototype Mars rover named Dante.
Lucy graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a degree in broadcasting. At the University, she wrote and delivered the news at KSUA, which at the time was the nation’s number one commercial college station. She also had a midday rock-n-roll radio show. She ended up landing an internship at KATN which found her in her first paying job in journalism.
Lucy’s work has earned her various EMMY, Golden Mike, Edward R. Murrow and AP Broadcasters awards. However, Lucy’s biggest reward has always been the ability to help people who need it through her work.
Lucy was born in Saigon, Vietnam. She grew up near the University of Oregon in Eugene. Growing up, she was always asked: “What are you?” Lucy was an ethnically-diverse kid when no one knew what that term meant. She was never offended. She replied “I’m an American.” And she is thrilled to call “The Birthplace of America” her home.
