Erica Hill Channels Her Inner Mary Richards for New HLN Show

By A.J. Katz 

Erica Hill has long been known as someone who can turn the world on with her smile. Now she has the promo to prove it.

Hill makes her return to HLN tomorrow with a new show called On the Story with Erica Hill. The New York-based program will air weekdays from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. ET and will have the network’s west coast-based morning show MichaeLA, hosted by Michaela Pereira, as its lead-in. HLN produced a rather creative promo for On the Story, with Hill playing the role of another popular female newscaster you might recognize. Check it out:

Of course, this was the inspiration:

Hill anchored on HLN from 2003 to 2010, later moving to CBS to co-anchor the Early Show, before jumping to NBC News as co-anchor of weekend Today.
