WCNC anchor Beth Troutman announced today she’s leaving the Charlotte, N.C. NBC affiliate to volunteer in Haiti.
Troutman, who started anchoring at WCNC in September 2015, will be working with Give Hope Global, an organization helping orphaned children.
“I am being called to do something with deeper meaning for me right now and look forward to learning what life has been trying to teach me for quite some time,” said Troutman.
WCNC says the move comes after “personal losses of her mom and a dear friend.” Her last day will be January 31.
“We are very proud of Beth and what she contributed to the success at WCNC” said GM Deborah Collura. “She has been through a lot in the past year and turning her losses into meaning and hope for others is just incredible.”
Troutman came from nationally syndicated show RightThisMinute. She’s also hosted a show on Lifetime called The Balancing Act and has worked at WCCB in Charlotte.
