Fox has hired Sharon Lawson as a  replacement for Constance Jones on “Good Day Atlanta,” plucking from the pool in Miami yet again.

Lawson came from the NBC affiliate in Miami WTVJ-TV. She starts at Fox 5 in September.

Jones last year came from the ABC affiliate WPLG-TV in Miami but left recently without explanation after less than a year at Fox 5 and moved back to South Florida.

Based on her Twitter feed, Jones is not currently employed by any broadcaster.

Lawson joined WTJV in 2003 as a general assignment reporter and most recently did weekend anchoring. Previously, she worked in Sarasota, Fla. and Minneapolis. She graduated from the University of Central Florida.

She will co-anchor with Katie Beasley at 4:30 am and with Buck Lanford at 5 a.m. and 8 a.m., according to a press release.
