Big Apple Bound

An Anchor in Albany, NY is leaving for the Big Apple.

WNYT Anchor Jessica Layton is leaving the station to take a reporting job at WCBS in New York City at the end of June.

Layton announced on her Facebook page that this “is my last full week of work at NewsChannel 13. Andrew, CJ and I will be starting a new adventure, as I begin reporting for WCBS-TV in New York City at the end of June. We are excited for what’s next, but there’s no place like home … My last day at WNYT is June 1.”

In 2009, WNYT installed Layton as co-anchor of its 11 p.m. newscast, replacing Lydia Kulbida. Layton grew up in Burnt Hills and is a 2003 graduate of Syracuse University.

She is married to Andrew Catalon, a former WNYT sports reporter who is now working for CBS Sports.
