Alysha Daniels serves as the Weekend News Anchor for The WGY Weekend with Joe Gallagher (6am-10am).
As a two-time graduate of the New School of Radio and Television, Alysha’s first job in radio saw her become the Capital Region's first Airborne Traffic Reporter, providing WGY-In-The-Sky traffic updates as well as traffic reports for 99.5 The River. To answer the most-asked question she receives about that time: yes, there really was an airplane (not a helicopter). While she did not pilot the WGY-In-The-Sky plane, it sparked an interest in flying. She was a student pilot and has flown single engine aircraft.
Alysha worked for other radio/TV stations in the region before embarking on a career in telecommunications where she is currently an Enterprise Process Architect. A lifelong news junkie, the weekend news anchor position at WGY was just the opportunity she needed to get back to fulfilling her dream of returning to a newsroom.
Alysha loves to travel. She is also a deal diva, using coupons and finding sales to save as much money as possible. She cheers only for New York sports teams, with the New York Rangers taking the top spot in her household.
Raised in Arbor Hill, Alysha met her now husband, Gene, and the city girl moved to the country. They live in northern Schenectady County and raise chickens instead of children.
