Viewers of Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB will notice a change in the morning anchor lineup starting tomorrow, when veteran anchor Linda Stouffer (right) will leave the desk to take on a daily contributor role for the morning and evening newscasts.
“What a joy it’s been waking up with Atlanta every day,” said Stouffer. “Like a lot of people, I did some re-evaluating in the pandemic and decided that I need a little more sleep, and a schedule that lines up with the people I love. But I’m thrilled to say, I’m not going anywhere!”
Taking Stouffer’s place on the evening line-up is Lori Wilson, who will join the WSB morning newscast starting Tuesday at 4:30 a.m. Wilson joins Fred Blankenship, Brian Monahan, Mark Arum and Heather Catlin.
“It takes a special person to join the Channel 2 Action News morning team,” said WSB vp and general manager Ray Carter. “They must demonstrate two key qualities: a commitment to journalistic excellence and our community and the ability to connect with our viewers as the news cycle constantly changes.”
