After a Decade Away, Gurvir Dhindsa Returns to WAGA’s ‘Good Day Atlanta’

Gurvir Dhindsa is returning to WAGA‘s “Good Day Atlanta.”

Dhindsa, who has been working as an anchor for D.C. Fox O&O WTTG since 2004, previously anchored “Good Day Atlanta” from 1997 to 2000.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Gurvir back,” said WAGA vice president and general manager Bill Schneider, in making the announcement. “Her knowledge of Atlanta combined with her ability to connect with viewers makes her the ideal candidate to host ‘Good Day.’”

Dhindsa is replacing Suchita Vadlamani, who abruptly left the station in December. She’ll anchor alongside Mark Hayes.

Suchita Vadlamani Departs WAGA’s “Good Day Atlanta”

“Good Day Atlanta” host Suchita Vadlamani has left Atlanta Fox-affiliate WAGA.

Vadlamani announced the departure Monday on her Facebook fan page: “It’s official! After a memorable 8 1/2 yrs at Good Day, it’s time for another big adventure! Join me as I take it to the next level!”

“Suchita Vadlamani has resigned from FOX 5 to pursue other personal interests and professional opportunities,” WAGA said in a statement. “We thank her for her contributions to the FOX 5 team over the past 8-1/2 years and wish her the very best in all her future endeavors.”

According to media reporter Rodney Ho of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Vadlamani’s exit from WAGA has been rumored since early December when Ryan Cameron, a DJ for Atlanta’s V-103, announced on-air that she had been fired but then quickly retracted the statement.  Vadlamani’s attorney told Ho that his client was leaving WAGA on her own volition.
