By A.J. Katz 

Scripps News has hired longtime Charlotte, N.C. anchor Carolyn Bruck to join a rotating team of anchors, delivering live news programming weekdays from 6 a.m. through 10 p.m. ET.

Bruck joins Scripps News after an eight-year run as anchor at WCNC-TV. While there, she covered stories of local, national and international import, as well as providing in-depth coverage of popular culture, sports and politics.

Scripps News president Kate O’Brian made the announcement of Bruck’s hire on Wednesday.


“Scripps News is expanding its broadcasting talent, and this hire is a reflection of that,” O’Brian said in a statement. “Carolyn’s experience covering a wide range of topics will make her a perfect addition to the Scripps News anchor team.”

Bruck added, “I am very much looking forward to joining a team dedicated to reporting the news — in-depth and in the most engaging way possible. This is a fantastic opportunity to provide viewers with information and insight in the context of the most interesting events and stories, as they happen. This job has taken me across the U.S., and I’m now thrilled to have a new home with Scripps News on a national stage.”

Prior to her stint at the NBC affiliate in Charlotte, Bruck served as the weekday morning anchor for both the Fox and ABC affiliates in Columbus, Ohio. She has also worked as a nightly news anchor for KSEE-TV, Fresno, Calif.’s NBC affiliate.

Bruck’s first day at Scripps News is Monday, October 30.
