KDKA Reporter Heads to Court


KDKA (Pittsburgh) Reporter Julie Grant is headed to court.

Grant is leaving the CBS O&O and headed to the soon-to-be relaunched crime and trial based Court TV channel.

Grant will join original Court TV alum Vinnie Politan and Seema Ilyer of HLN's "Crime & Justice," as anchors for the channel, which returns in May.

The original Court TV ran on cable TV from 1991 until 2008 when it was acquired by Time Warner and rebranded TruTV.

"My friends, this is a dream come true for me," Grant said in announcing the impending move on Facebook, "I'm so grateful for this exciting opportunity to combine my passions."

Grant has spent her career juggling journalism and legal jobs.

Before KDKA, she worked as an Anchor/Reporter at WGHP in Greensboro, NC and WTOV in Steubenville, OH. She also served as an Allegheny County (Pittsburgh) assistant district attorney for nearly four years.
