New Orleans native and WWL employee Sheba Turk has been selected as the CBS affiliate’s new morning traffic reporter.

According to her station bio, Turk had worked as an associate producer for the morning news since September 2011.

“I never imagined that I would have a chance to be a reporter at WWL-TV this early in my career,” Turk said in the bio. “It is still a bit surreal to be a part of the show that defines mornings for so many in New Orleans.”

Turk replaces Christina Leavenworth, who left the station to work at WEAR-TV in the Mobile-Pensacola market last month.

WWL-TV says Turk had been shadowing reporters since being hired and waited for an open position.
