Fox has hired Sharon Lawson as a replacement for Constance Jones on “Good Day Atlanta,” plucking from the pool in Miami yet again.
Lawson came from the NBC affiliate in Miami WTVJ-TV. She starts at Fox 5 in September.
Based on her Twitter feed, Jones is not currently employed by any broadcaster.
Lawson joined WTJV in 2003 as a general assignment reporter and most recently did weekend anchoring. Previously, she worked in Sarasota, Fla. and Minneapolis. She graduated from the University of Central Florida.
She will co-anchor with Katie Beasley at 4:30 am and with Buck Lanford at 5 a.m. and 8 a.m., according to a press release.
