News Channel 8 Salutes Carole Lambert For Her Years Of Service

Posted: Updated:

After a distinguished 29-year career as news anchor for KTUL News Channel 8, Carole Lambert has announced that she is moving back to her hometown of Springfield, Missouri to pursue new opportunities.

Ms. Lambert informed station management of her decision on Wednesday. She joined the station in 1982 anchoring the nightly newscasts for nearly 3 decades. Ms. Lambert is an Emmy Award winning broadcaster who was inducted in the Oklahoma Association of Broadcaster's Hall of Fame in 2009. She is also a member of the prestigious Silver Circle Society – Heartland Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

"This certainly is a surprise and we hate to see her leave. Carole will not only be missed at the station she will be missed by countless viewers who have grown to love her each night as she delivers Tulsa's news of the day," said KTUL President and General Manager Pat Baldwin.

In addition to her anchoring duties, Ms. Lambert is perhaps best known for her weekly segment "Waiting Child" which has helped match thousands of children with adoptive families.

"She touched the lives of thousands of kids whom she helped place into loving homes. Carole's passion for the community and her heart of gold is what we will miss the most," said Mr. Baldwin.

"Carole will leave her mark as one of the most successful broadcasters in Tulsa history," said News Director Carlton Houston. "Her longevity is a tribute to her work ethic and devotion to the viewers of Tulsa and northeast Oklahoma."

The move puts Ms. Lambert closer to her two sisters and other family members. Her final day on News Channel 8 will be in late July.

"This is one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make," said Ms. Lambert. "However I'm excited about pursuing new opportunities in my hometown. I especially want to thank the station management for their support over the years. I count my blessings daily."
