Greg Loyd anchors “News 3 This Morning” and “News 3 Midday” weekdays on WRBL. Along with those duties, Greg serves as morning executive producer and produces “News 3 Midday.” He joined WRBL as a multimedia journalist in 2016, before being promoted to morning anchor/reporter in February 2017. In July 2017, Greg started anchoring and producing “News 3 Midday.”
Greg graduated from The Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Media Communication and a minor in journalism. He also earned a Master of Arts in English from Valdosta State University.
His adventures in broadcasting began at age 17. WTXL, the ABC affiliate in Tallahassee, gave him the chance to work as a weekend master control operator. He eventually worked with news production, running studio cameras. During his senior year at FSU, Greg returned to WTXL as a production assistant and news intern.
After graduation, Greg worked at NBC affiliate WALB in Albany, Georgia, as the Valdosta Bureau Chief.
After a year there, Greg joined the Albany, Georgia, FOX affiliate WFXL. He started as a weekend reporter on a part time basis. After a few months, he jumped back into the business full-time. He eventually became weeknight anchor.
Readers of “The Albany Herald” voted Greg “One of the Best Local TV Anchors” in 2000. That same year, Greg was invited to attend the Georgia Association of Broadcasters annual GABBY awards because judges named his series “The Ghosts of Georgia” a finalist in its best series category.
During his time at WFXL, Greg was first paired as a co-anchor with the person who would become his lifelong best friend, Mercer Van Schoor. Some 16 years later, the two would work together again co-anchoring “News 3 This Morning.” Even though Mercer has since moved on, the two remain as close as ever!
During his years outside of broadcasting, Greg taught college English courses at community colleges in Georgia and Florida.
Greg’s parents David and Geneva, his sister Melanie, and brother-in-law Todd rank as his biggest influences and inspirations. The entire family loves animals. In fact, his father still operates a cattle farm in southwestern Georgia.
