THV Morning Anchor Headed to WAGA/Atlanta

Alyse Eady is headed to Atlanta Fox Station WAGA./Channel 5.

This from a tipster:

She said this morning on 103.7 that she would be working with Ron Gant, who is with the Fox affiliate in Atlanta.

Ron Gant is the co-anchor of Good Day Atlanta at WAGA.

Gant's done well for himself. He's a former major league baseball player who studied the broadcasting business during his later years in the game hoping for a post-career gig. Many of those guys wash out shortly after retirement because they don't want to learn the business.

Atlanta is my home market, and with Alyse Eady getting hired by WAGA to co-anchor Good Day Atlanta, I'm assuming she'll be replacing Gurvir Dhindsa, who departed in late April.

WSB has been the top-rated Atlanta station for most of its history, and is one of the strongest performing ABC stations in the country. WSB rarely poached talents from competing stations, and usually promotes talents from within, that could explain low turnover cycle. And WSB is one of a handful of stations still owned and operated by their original parent companies.

WAGA has been the Fox station since 1994, and comes in second in the ratings. With the departure of veteran anchors Gurvir Dhindsa and Lisa Rayam, and Eady poised to replace Dhindsa on Good Day, there's still ongoing speculation that former WGCL anchor Stephany Fisher could be getting wooed by the Fox O&O station, perhaps to replace Rayam.

WXIA is owned by TEGNA, the same company that owns KTHV. The NBC affiliate usually takes third place.

WGCL is the Meredith-owned CBS affiliate that's usually last in the ratings, and has high turnover (station is seen as a revolving door), branding changes every couple of years, and so on... due to Meredith's lack of patience, unless Meredith is mulling over selling its broadcasting division to another media group, since the M&A with Media General didn't work out.

The last poster said "WSB rarely poached talents from competing stations" You might want a history of WSB, because it has poached talent from WAGA/WXIA/WGCL in the past. It has, because it has $$$$.

I agree with you but I think Liz is quite happy where she is, working for the Cabot school district.
