Hometown Rankin Magazine has made an announcement, revealing that former WLBT news anchor, Barbie Bassett, has joined their team. This news comes after a period of speculation surrounding Bassett’s departure from WLBT and her immediate and abrupt absence from the public eye.

Back in October 2022, Bassett found herself in hot water when she made a comment on the air that offended viewers due to its racial overtones. This sparked backlash from the audience, leading Bassett to issue an apology the following day.

Adding to the controversy, social media later drew attention to Bassett for using a comment referencing Snoop Dogg while reporting on a story. These incidents raised questions about her future in the news industry.

In the midst of these developments, Hometown Rankin Magazine confirmed on Wednesday that Barbie Bassett has officially joined their team. The publication expressed their excitement and stated that they were thrilled to have her aboard.
