Fox 29 Anchor Lucy Noland to kick off
Season 2 of Tasty Talks on September 26.

Lucy Noland, who anchors FOX 29 News at 5 and 10pm, was born in Saigon, Vietnam and grew up in Eugene, Oregon. Her professional career began at ABC affiliate KATN-TV in Fairbanks, Alaska, where she shot, wrote and edited her own stories and anchored newscasts. To cover the news, Lucy buzzed Mt. McKinley in a C-130 and refueled an A-10 “Warthog” by herself in mid-flight. Imagine the pilot’s surprise!

After transferring to KIMO-TV in Anchorage, Ms. Noland covered the eruptions of Mt. Redoubt and Mt. Spurr, guiding Alaskans through the ash-covered days that followed. Afterwards, NASA invited her on a journey into Mt. Spurr’s crater to test out its prototype Mars rover, Dante. At KGO-TV in San Francisco, Lucy trudged through the sewage-drenched mudflats separating Tijuana from San Diego under the cover of night to report on immigration issues, and investigated water rights in the irrigated San Joaquin Valley.

Prior to joining the FOX 29 News team in June 2014, Lucy anchored newscasts at KNBC in Los Angeles, at KHOU11 News in Houston, and at WJBK-TV in Detroit, and co-hosted “Good Day New York,” at WNYW-TV. Her work has earned the EMMY, Golden Mike, Edward R. Murrow and AP Broadcasters awards. But her biggest reward, Lucy says, is helping people and animals in need. An outspoken animal rights advocate, Lucy has selected as our September charity Non-lethal Options for Animals. All profits will be donated to this important effort to help rescued pets.

Please join us and Tasty Talks Founder Michelle Leonard as we welcome Lucy on Wednesday, September 26. Hors d’oeuvres begin at 12:30, followed by Lucy’s Talk, Q&A, and lunch. Just $20 ($25 at the door, if seats available) covers a wonderful family-style lunch, dessert, tax and tip.
