Both Gannett, which owns 11Alive, and Meredith, which owns CBS46, have sister stations to place local news during prime-time hours. 11Alive recently added two more hours of news on WATL-TV. And CW69 last week started its own 10 p.m. newscast.
Sperow, an Emmy-winning journalist, will also co-anchor the "FOX 5 News Edge" weekdays at 11 p.m., alongside Tom Haynes and contribute to the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts.
She spent the past 11 years as the weekday morning anchor for CBS affiliate WBTV in Charlotte. She has also worked at stations in Tyler, Tex. and Greenville, Miss.
Sperow, a Miami native, is married and has two children. Most of her immediate family now resides in Atlanta, according to her WBTV bio.
She was a top-notch high school volleyball player, receiving a full athletic scholarship to UGA.
This move will sub out “Judge Judy” at 4:30 p.m. but that popular syndicated show will now air at 3:30 p.m. (taking over for an episode of “Divorce Court”) while a second episode will remain at 4 p.m.
