WDSU Reporter Named Weekend Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

Gina Swanson has been named weekend evening anchor for New Orleans NBC affiliate WDSU.

Swanson had been anchoring weekends on an “interim” basis. She started at WDSU in 2008 as a general assignment reporter. She’s also worked in Monroe, La. and Austin, Texas.

“We’re thrilled to have someone with Gina’s experience and deep local roots anchoring our newscasts, said WDSU news director Jonathan Shelley. “Gina knows news and New Orleans inside and out. She truly defines the term ‘broadcast journalist.'”
