If this ends up being permanent, it would be a rare combo or one I can't recall ever seeing on Atlanta news: two women helming a morning show with a female meteorologist Jennifer Valdez and traffic reporter Julie Smith as well. Notably, they are all minorities as well.

Dhindsa was a host at "Good Day Atlanta" twice.
She first worked at "Good Day" from 1997 to 2000 before moving to D.C. to work at a Fox affiliate there.
Dhindsa returned to Atlanta in 2011, replacing Suchita Vadlamani, who is no longer in the business and is raising a daughter.
In a Facebook messenger note, she merely said, "I left Fox 5 because the time was right for me to leave Fox."
For her, she said she's excited to be at CBS46. "I love the energy and momentum of the station and its management and staff. After meeting with the new news director Steve Doerr, we both felt it was the right fit and the right time."
She added: "I have had the rare and wonderful gift of time with my family since leaving. Now I am ready to get back in the saddle. One of the things I'm looking forward to the most is reconnecting with all those folks who wake up early in Georgia!"
Dhindsa's "Good Day Atlanta" replacement was Alyse Eady.
CBS46 recently added a new slogan: "Local, Real, Everywhere."
