Sharon Reed Is Leaving WGCL

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WGCL in Atlanta is losing its main anchor at the end of May.

Sharon Reed, who has been the face of the station’s evening newscasts and Peachtree TV since 2015, announced this week that she will be leaving when her contract ends.

“In the last few months, some exciting projects have come up that require my full-time attention to properly explore,” said Reed. “As a result, I’ve made the difficult decision to leave CBS46 and Peachtree TV when my contract expires at the end of May. This decision does not come lightly—it’s something I have been thinking about for months. In the television business, timing is critical, and this is the time for me to make this move.”

“We recognize that big opportunities come along infrequently and while we’ll miss the energy, passion and talent Sharon brings to our organization, we respect Sharon’s decision to pursue her dreams,” said CBS46 and Peachtree TV vice president and general manager Lyle Banks.

Reed’s final newscast will be May 22.
