Longtime WTOP afternoon co-anchor Hillary Howard exits on June 2

by | May 19, 2023

Hillary Howard, WTOP afternoon co-anchor, will leave the station on Friday, June 2.

According to RadioInsight, Howard has co-anchored afternoons at WTOP since 2007 following a long run in the Washington market as a television reporter and weathercaster at WTTG, WJLA and WUSA-TV between 1989 and 2005. Howard began her career in radio in her native New York with stops at RKO Radio Network and 1010 WINS along with suburban stations on Long Island and Poughkeepsie before making the move to television. Howard also serves as host of the academic quiz show “It’s Academic” on WETA-TV Washington.

In a note to WTOP colleagues, Howard wrote, in part:  “Life is nothing but change. We are young. We are older. We’re awakened by new love and stricken by its end. We are naïve. We are wizened. We plan. Then we meander. And all of it shapes us.”

In November 2022, eight veteran WTOP staffers agreed to take contract buyouts from the station.
