Tiffany Lee has been promoted to morning co-anchor of Fort Smith, Ark., CBS affiliate KFSM.
Starting January 2, Lee will co-anchor 5NEWS This Morning Monday through Friday from 4:30 to 7 a.m. alongside Jo Ellison and meteorologist Zac Scott. She has been anchoring the Saturday and Sunday morning newscasts while reporting for the station’s morning newscast during the weekdays.
“Tiffany’s enthusiasm and natural charisma is unmatched. Her ability to show empathy and compassion to everyone in our community is incredible. She is proud to be from Arkansas and tell the stories of our community,” said KFSM news director Morgan Schaab. “We look forward to Tiffany’s continued contributions to 5NEWS This Morning as an anchor and contributor to our digital platforms.”
“I could not be more excited or honored to step in the co-anchor position on 5NEWS This Morning alongside Jo and Zac! I have wanted to be a news anchor since I watched the news with my grandma as a little girl. I am blessed to get to take on my dream job right here in my home state of Arkansas,” said Lee. “Over the last three and a half years, I have gotten to know the community and share so many wonderful stories. I love 5COUNTRY and can’t wait to grow together, laugh together, call the hogs together and wake up together every weekday morning.”
The station said that with Lee’s promotion, all the on-air members of the morning team are Arkansas natives.
