Fox 5 has added Constance Jones from Miami to its “Good Day Atlanta” team, replacing the recently departed Karen Graham.
Jones has spent the past nine years at the ABC affiliate in Miami WPLG Local 10 where she has been a reporter/anchor.
Her launch date at Fox 5 has not been set. She appears to still be working at WPLG, which still has her profile up.
According to her Linkedin page, Jones has covered the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, President Barack Obama‘s election campaign, the BP Gulf oil spill, along with devastating hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and ice storms.
Her WPLG bio notes that she was born in Stuttgart, Germany, and spent most of her childhood oversea. She is conversational in German and has also lived in Timisoara, Romania.
Other markets she has been in include New York City, Oklahoma City and Houston. She worked with Dan Rather on “CBS Evening News.”
Here’s a sampling of her work:
And she even rappelled down a building in Miami for charity:
This is the second major change on the morning show this year. Gurvir Dhindsa left earlier this year and was replaced recently by Alyse Eady from Arkansas.
Graham left Fox 5 after a 16-year run just a couple of weeks ago.
Jones will join the current team, which includes Eady, Joanne Feldman, Katie Beasley, Ron Gant and Buck Lanford.
“Good Day Atlanta” usually finishes a solid second place behind WSB-TV programming from 4:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
