WALB is happy to announce that Melissa Hodges will be joining our team as our 5 & 6pm anchor this fall.
She comes to us with nearly a decade of experience in the television news business.
But she's no stranger to Southwest Georgia.
Melissa used to work at WALB from 2002-2004 and her husband is actually from Albany.
Melissa replaces Tara Herrschaft who left WALB in June for a job closer to family.
Melissa will co-anchor alongside Ben Roberts beginning in October.
