GMA’s Ginger Zee welcomes “Addition” who said they “step straight into a new role at the network.”
A NEW anchor filled up ABC’s “America This Morning” on Tuesday and was immediately welcomed to the show by weather king Ginger Zee.
Jaclyn Lee announced this week that she will be filling key shows for World News Now and America This Morning in the coming days.
She added that following those posts, she will be seen on local ABC counters.
Jaclyn tweeted: “Jump right in! What a start to a new job.
“I’ve been filling out the moderator’s desk for World News Now and @americathismorning all week!
“Check your local @ABC listings and you can watch early mornings with the other insomniacs.”
The tweet was accompanied by a clip from her anchor show on Tuesday, in which she gave further insight into the Chinese spy balloon.
Jaclyn provided more details on the 200ft balloon that was shot down over the US, revealing “loopholes” in US intelligence.
In response to her news, Ginger Zee said, “Welcome!” At that, Jaclyn explained her excitement at meeting the chief meteorologist.
Meanwhile, longtime followers of Jaclyn have shared their bittersweet feelings about her new post.

The news anchor previously worked for the ABC network 6abc Action News in Philadelphia, where she was a reporter and anchor for three years.
Before that, she worked for WVEC-TV, ABC’s Norfolk, Virginia affiliate, as an anchor and general reporter.
The veteran reporter also launched a PSA that aired nationally on ABC-owned stations.
The public safety announcement on hate crimes against Asians was both suggested and completed by Jaclyn.
She has now relocated to New York as one of ABC’s new multiplatform reporters, alongside Melissa Adan, who has also taken on the role in Los Angeles.
In a Facebook post, Jaclyn noted how “surreal” her new post was, calling it a “dream come true.”
She wrote: “Getting to this point has been a dream for as long as I can remember, so it’s surreal to say the least.
“I wouldn’t be here without some really incredible mentors.
“I first visited NYC 10 years ago, resumes in hand and the smartest work clothes I could afford.
“I pounded on the sidewalk hoping someone would give me an injection.”
She continued: “Long story short – it never happened. No one gave me the time of day (I don’t blame them either).
“I’m writing this short story to say you’ll get a million nos, but it only takes one yes to change your career… I’m excited to put the work in.” Let’s go!”
