Lydia Kulbida co-anchors NEWS10 at 4pm with Elisa Streeter and NEWS CENTER at 6pm with John Gray.
She joined NEWS10 in September 2009, with almost a decade's worth of broadcasting experience in the Capital Region. During that time, Lydia was part of the Best Newscast as chosen by the New York State Broadcaster's Association.
Lydia hit the ground running on her first day on air at NEWS10, anchoring our coverage of President Obama's visit to the Capital Region. During her career, Lydia has also covered numerous national political conventions, and soared with both the U. S. Navy Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, piloting an F-16 herself.
But it's her community and charity involvement that Lydia is especially proud of, including the March of Dimes, the Alzheimer's Association of Northeastern New York, The Legal Project, Zorepad Ukrainian Folk Dancers, Living Resources and the Center for Independence. Lydia was honored by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children for her work in promoting the safety and welfare of children
Lydia came to the Capital Region from WWLP-TV 22 in Springfield, Massachusetts, where she anchored the 5 p.m. news and reported for more than four years. Lydia has a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from New York University, and her on-camera career began in the North Country, anchoring and reporting at TV-8 in Glens Falls, working there with NEWS10 Meteorologist Andy Gregorio. She then spent four years in Buffalo working as a news anchor and music director for that city's National Public Radio affiliate, WBFO-FM.
Lydia and her husband, a physician at Bellevue Woman's Hospital, have two children.
