Maggie Poteau Returns to WBMA After Five Years

After a five-year absence, Maggie Poteau is returning to Birmingham’s WBMA to co-anchor the morning show at the ABC affiliate.

Poteau was the morning anchor from 2004 to 2006. “We are very excited to have Maggie back on our team,” WBMA president and general manager Mike Murphy said in a statement. “She brings a lot of experience and energy to our morning newscasts.”

Poteau will replace Pam Huff — her former morning co-anchor — on “Good Morning Alabama.” Huff, who has been on the morning show for more than 12 years, will anchor a new 4 p.m. show that will replace “The Oprah Winfrey Show” this fall. Poteau will co-anchor with Yenu Wodajo, who has been the WBMA morning anchor since 2008.
