Not entirely sure what’s going on with this, but I guess it’s fairly self-explanatory.

According to an Instagram posting, WNCN anchor Pam Saulsby has been fired.

In the post, which she also tweeted, Saulsby said: “I’m about to take a real long walk. I can. I don’t have a job. I just got fired. Got some thinking to do.”

Saulsby went to work at WNCN in September of 2012 after WRAL, where she had worked for 20 years, didn’t renew her contract.

At WNCN, Saulsby co-anchored the 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts and produced special reports for the newscast and website.

WNCN news director Andrea Parquet-Taylor confirmed Thursday afternoon that Saulsby is no longer with the station.

“We wish her wonderfully well,” Parquet-Taylor said. “I have always respected Pam and I’m glad we had the chance to work together again.” Parquet-Taylor and Saulsby worked together for a time at WRAL.

“I honor and respect her and appreciate all she has done in the community,” she continued.

Parquet-Taylor would not say who would take Saulsby’s place tonight or on subsequent newscasts.
