WALB welcomes new anchor to the team

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - 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.
