'Good Day Atlanta' host Alyse Eady appears on Fox's 'Star'


Posted Wednesday, October 11, 2017 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Alyse Eady will appear playing herself on tonight's episode of Fox's "Star" where the girl group appears on "Good Day Atlanta." The show airs at 9 p.m. after "Empire."

This is natural cross promotional opportunity between the local Fox affiliate and the network drama created by Lee Daniels, who also oversees "Empire."

Eady, who joined Fox 5 last year from Arkansas as a morning host, is expected to be in a couple of scenes. "Star" is set in Atlanta and its fictional girl group is supposed to make a promotional appearance on "Good Day Atlanta" that does not go smoothly because the trio expected to be co headlining, not playing back up to another singer.

She herself has been on prime-time TV. She was Miss Arkansas in 2010 and came in as first runner up in the Miss America pageant.

In the episode, "Star" made an appearance on "Good Day Atlanta" sound way more important than it probably is. And they didn't use the actual "Good Day Atlanta" set. They opted for something much bigger and fancier.

TV PREVIEW

"Star," 9 p.m. Tuesdays, Fox
