Stacey Elgin, who was let go last year from Fox 5 (WAGA-TV) as the Road Warrior on “Good Day Atlanta,” has nabbed a new gig as an Olympics correspondent for 11 Alive (WXIA-TV) – at least locally.
The Olympics begin Friday in London and will air on NBC and affiliated networks.
Elgin broke the news on her personal Facebook page:
I’m looking forward to a busy week ahead! Probably a little anxious too since I’m starting a new job, going back on air… and leaving the boys. That’s right… I will be starting at WXIA 11Alive this week for their Olympics coverage! I’m so excited for this opportunity! Be sure to tune in. I’ll have regular updates here as well .. so stay close! (oh… no… I’m not going to London) Go Team USA!
This appears to be a temporary job but naturally, if she does a good job and the money’s there, she could certainly latch onto a full-time job down the road.
