Sula Kim is coming back to New Orleans NBC affiliate WDSU.

Kim left the Hearst-owned station in 2015. She comes from KING in Seattle, replacing Adrianna Hopkins who recently got married and will move out of state to join her husband.

“We are thrilled to welcome back Sula Kim,” said news director Akili Franklin. “Her journalistic integrity and her knowledge and adoration for this city will be a strong asset to our newsroom.”

Kim will join Shaun Kraisman as co-anchor of the 5 p.m. weekday newscast on Monday, March 13. She’ll anchor the 6 and 10 p.m. with Scott Walker.

“New Orleans has a way of getting into your soul,” said Kim. “I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to come back and to once again be a part of the city I love.”

Gina Swanson moves to the 4 p.m. with Shaun Kraisman.
