Anchor Lisa Rayam, who left Atlanta Fox station WAGA earlier this year, will join Georgia Public Television’s public affairs program, Lawmakers, early next year.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Rayam, who spent more than two decades at WAGA, will serve as a reporter covering the state legislature during its session, which runs from January through late March.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the ‘Lawmakers’ team, where I will have the opportunity to delve into storytelling that really matters and affects all of us here in Georgia,” Rayam said in a statement. “On the heels of an explosive Presidential election, the role of state government will get pushed into the limelight even more, and I am excited to be a part of the mix. I love telling stories about everyday people, and it will be an honor to share some of those stories as they relate to the decisions made by our lawmakers.”
