Retired Atlanta Anchor to Return in Ratings Stunt

WXIA Anchor Jill Becker retired from the station in 2011.

But now she is coming back to the Atlanta station. For one week.

The station announced that Becker returning to the anchor desk for Back-to-School Week on Atlanta Alive from August 3-7. Jill retired from 11Alive in 2011.

For more than 30 years, Jill Becker helped Atlantans start their day. Becker says she's excited to rejoin Atlanta Alive to help get us back to school.

"We are thrilled to have Jill Becker join the Atlanta Alive team. We know she's missed and we're excited she agreed to come back to kick off the back-to-school rush. The start of a new school year impacts everyone, and we know Jill is a respected and familiar face to help you navigate all the changes," 11Alive News Director, Jennifer Rigby.

Sounds like a ratings stunt to us.
