Arkansas anchor Alyse Eady coming to Atlanta. Where will she land?

By RODNEY HO/, originally filed Monday, July 11, 2016

An Arkansas anchor Alyse Eady announced Monday night that she's heading to Atlanta as an anchor in August.

She'll be leaving a Tegna-owned CBS affiliate in Little Rock at the end of the month. An Arkansas news blogger David Glass tipped me about this.

Eady didn't say what station she's going to. There are three anchor openings right now. Lisa Rayam rand Gurvir Dhindsa ecently departed Fox 5. And Erin Coleman just left Channel 2 Action News.

I'll see if I can figure out which station she may be going to. Who knows? It might be at one of the other stations for all I know. I'll update this if I hear anything concrete.

She posted this news on her Facebook page:

For more than 5 years, I’ve had the privilege of sharing the news with you on THV 11. This incredible job has allowed me to meet and interview some of the most interesting people in Arkansas, and serve dozens of non-profit organizations in the community. I've worked with some of the most talented people in TV news and will cherish these friendships forever.

My last day at THV 11 will be July 29, then I’ll head to Atlanta where I’ve accepted an anchor position. Thank you for inviting me into your homes each day, and for trusting me to do the job I’ve loved so much. You can take the girl out of Arkansas, but you can NEVER take Arkansas out of the girl!

She was a first runner-up for Miss America in 2010 as Miss Arkansas.
