Matt and Ramona returning to Fox News Edge

Fox Charlotte announced a new lineup for its 10 p.m. newshour Wednesday, with radio personalities Matt Harris and Ramona Holloway returning to "Fox News Edge."

Morgan Fogarty, who has been anchoring the 10 p.m. newscast since the departure of Rebecca Clark in December, has been named permanent anchor along with Israel Balderas, who moves up from the news desk of the morning show "Fox News Rising," WCCB (Channel 18) station manager Jim White said Wednesday.

Balderas worked for Fox News Channel in Washington while pursuing a law degree at Catholic University. He came to Charlotte from the Fox affiliate in El Paso, Texas.

Fogarty joined "Fox News Rising" in 2005, moving up from a station in Hagerstown, Md. She was paired on "Fox News Edge" with Brotha Fred until he departed in December for a job in Chicago.

Harris and Holloway, afternoon drive-time hosts on WLNK-FM ("The Link" 107.9), hosted "Fox News Edge" beginning in 2005, then backed away from the show about three years later, making way for Brotha Fred and Fogarty.

Fox Charlotte's prime anchor spots were up for grabs after the departure of Clark last month and Brien Blakely last week in the wake of an office fracas with a news producer.
