Fox 9 has finally landed on its replacement for Heidi Collins.

Kelcey Carlson, who has spent the past decade manning the desk at WRAL in Raleigh-Durham, NC, will join Jeff Passolt in early February as anchors of "Fox 9 News at 5PM" and "Fox 9 News at 9PM."

She takes over for Heidi Collins who left under mysterious circumstances in July after a somewhat rocky three-year stint at the station.

"This opportunity is like winning the jackpot," Carlson said in a statement. "I have fond memories of my summer vacations in the Midwest and I'm so excited to move back here with my family and be a part of the talented Fox 9 news team."
