Karyn Greer Leaving CBS46 to Join Channel 2 Action News WSB-TV as Evening News Anchor This Fall

Atlanta news anchor Karyn Greer is leaving CBS46 WGCL-TV to join Channel 2 WSB-TV as an evening anchor in the fall of 2022. Without management specifically saying so, Greer is essentially replacing the late Jovita Moore. The popular news anchor at WSB-TV died of brain cancer last October. Moore had been anchoring in the evening slot after Monica (Kaufman) Pearson retirement from the anchor desk in 2012. By the way Pearson, now semi-retired, will be hosting two new shows on CBS46 and Peachtree TV/WPCH-TV.

Greer has worked in the Atlanta television since joining WGNX (the former call letters of CBS 46) in 1989. She then moved over to Channel 11 WXIA-TV from 1999 to 2015. From there she returned to Channel 46. Her non-compete clause with CBS46 prevents her from being on-air at Channel 2 until the fall.

“When you have the opportunity to add a journalist of Karyn’s stature, you do it,” said Ray Carter, vice president and general manager of WSB. “She brings so much to the table! We are excited to have her continue her stellar work in the community and, soon enough, help anchor one of the top-rated newscasts at WSB-TV Channel 2.”

“It is an opportunity of a lifetime to join this storied station and I’m humbled and grateful to continue the legacy of my sisters in news and friends at WSB-TV,” said Greer. “It will be a while before you actually see me on TV, but I’ll be in the background working hard for you, as always. I’m honored to join this team of illustrious journalists.”

“We are fortunate to have some of the most talented anchors, not just in the Atlanta market, but in the entire country. Karyn makes our team even stronger. It’s an exciting day for WSB- TV,” said Carter.
