Lauren Baker Leaving WITN in North Carolina After 2 Years

By Kevin Eck 

Lauren Baker is leaving Greenville, N.C. NBC affiliate WITN after two years as a morning anchor and producer.

On social media, she called the announcement “bittersweet news.”

“My time in Eastern Carolina is coming to an end,” she wrote. “A week from today, I will sign off one final time as your morning and midday anchor. The decision was tough, as this community has embraced me from the moment I started.”


Baker started her career as a producer in Lansing, Mich., before moving to Rockford, Ill., where she began her on-air career as a weekend anchor at WREX.

She said that the details on her next move are coming soon.
