NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – After reporting for Good Morning Nashville for over three years, Paige Hill will leave News 2 on Wednesday, Jan. 31.
“When I moved to Nashville, I knew I’d like it but I never thought I’d fall in love with this community,” said Paige.
Paige will remain in Nashville to work with Karl Dean’s campaign for governor.
“I can’t imagine my life anywhere else so I am thrilled to have an opportunity to stay and work on a campaign I am very passionate about,” she said.
Good Morning Nashville anchor Neil Orne had a hard time finding the words to describe the impact Paige had on our newsroom.
“First, she learned this town inside and out when it came to her on-air job. Clear, concise and always with an alternate. She worked hard at that and it showed. She came to work with a great attitude everyday and often would lift us all up, especially during commercial breaks. I will miss that. I had the pleasure of being her neighbor in the newsroom, that’s what I will miss most, by far. We just had a blast. I knew she was going to be a star the day we met, and I was right! I miss her already,” said Neil.
GMN co-anchor Nikki Burdine said despite only working with Paige for a year, that’s more than enough time to have fallen in love with her.
“You know when you meet someone and you just click? That’s the way it was with Paige. I just knew we were going to be friends. I’m so sad I won’t be seeing her everyday but I’m so happy for her and her next venture. I know she’s going to be doing great work and I’m so proud of her. I also know I’m still going to hang out with her so that’s helping me cope. Paige is one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met – inside and out. I’ve been lucky to call her a co-worker but even luckier to call her a friend,” said Nikki.
Paige said being welcomed into viewer’s homes was one of the best parts of working at News 2.
“I hate to even call you all Good Morning Nashville ‘viewers’ because you’re more than that. You welcome us into your home every morning and make us apart of your routine. I’ve loved getting to meet so many people around town who feel like we are a part of their family.”
