Former WPIX anchor Sukanya Krishnan joining Fox News 5

Longtime WPIX anchor Sukanya Krishnan has joined Channel 5 at Fox News!

She made her first appearance on Fox5 on August 21 at 4:30am alongside anchor Jennifer Lahmers.

The official Twitter for Fox News 5 announced the news on August 20.

The channel shared a photo of Krishnan behind the desk with Lahmers with the caption, “Get ready for Sukanya Krishnan and Jennifer Lahmers from 4:30-7:00 starting on Monday!”

Fans are excited to see Krishnan in her new role and are expressing their joy on social media.

However, some have raised concern about anchors Teresa Priolo and Antwan Lewis getting replaced.

“Time for a new studio too.. maybe not since who ever this Sukanya is probably has a over rated high salary. I like Jen Lahmers but it's not right pushing Antwan and Teresa out,” wrote a concerned fan.

Previously Sukanya worked at WPIX.

On May 3, Krishnan announced on air that she was leaving her job at WPIX in New York after 17 long years.

“My time at PIX is coming to an end. I will be leaving at the end of the month,” said the multiple Emmy Awards winning anchor to her fans.
