Colleagues Mourn the Loss of Former Reporter at Channel 13 in Albany
A longtime local television news anchor, reporter, and meteorologist passed away on Wednesday after succumbing to a lengthy battle with an illness.
"For a dozen years, Julie was a member of our team. A skilled meteorologist and lover of animals, especially her cats. She found forever homes for countless furry friends with her weekly "Shelter Sunday" segments.
Julie started at 13News Now in 2002 and left the station in 2014. Before she came to WVEC, she worked as a reporter and anchor at WNYT in Albany, New York.I will always remember her infectious laugh, her smile, and her constant pursuit of knowledge.
Julie left us today, but we will see each other again."
Julie Wilcox was a reporter at Newschannel 13 in Albany
As Wilcox was remembered by her loving former colleagues, it was noted that she worked as an anchor in Albany for a short time at Newschannel 13.
A former colleague of hers at Newschannel 13 remembered Wilcox on his Facebook page writing:
"I worked with Julie when she was a reporter in Albany NY and I produced commercials. Her work was always insightful, informative, and thorough. And her weather posts show those traits too."
Wilcox wasn't here for very long, but long-time Capital Region residents in the area remember her during team tornado coverage in Mechanicville dating back to 1998.
The news station has yet to comment on her passing.
