"I've always had Nashville on my radar," Sharp said in an interview with MLive. "The perfect job became available, and I was fortunate enough to be selected for it. My time at WNEM has been super positive and has been a great time for me to grow personally and professionally."

Ian Rubin, news director at WNEM, called Sharp's new job an "impressive" career jump.

"We're going to miss our friend and have appreciated her contributions over the past five years," he said.

Sharp is to remain at the TV5 anchor desk through mid-August. She begins in Nashville on Aug. 31.

Rubin said station management would first search for Sharp's replacement internally before posting a job.
