Gables, who had previously worked in Shreveport, LA as an investigative reporter and anchor, came to Atlanta early last year after Amanda Davis suddenly passed. She started as an early morning host but was moved to afternoons a year ago, swapping spots with Tracye Hutchins, who came to CBS46 in 2007 and spent most of her time in Atlanta on mornings.
Gables has also worked at stations in New York, Dallas and Detroit.
Before Reed, CBS46 had Stephany Fisher as female evening anchor from 2003 to 2015. Fisher is now a MARTA spokeswoman.
