WAGA Morning Anchor Leaving

By Kevin Eck 

Karen Graham, anchor for Atlanta Fox-owned station WAGA, is leaving the station.

She announced the news Wednesday on her Facebook page. She says she’s leaving to work with the deaf community. Her last day will be Wednesday, Sept. 7.

“We will miss Karen both personally and professionally,” said Mike McClain, vp and news director. “She was a delight to work with and we were lucky to have her; we wish her much success in this next chapter.”

“Now hold on! Before the gossip starts – no – FOX 5 did not force me out,” Graham wrote on Facebook.”In fact, my bosses tried everything to convince me to stay. And I mean everything.”
