Mornings with Hayley

Hayley WielgusWhile most of us are still sleeping, Hayley Wielgus is hard at work. Wielgus, 27—who arrived in Sarasota last June by way of Texas —gets up at 2 a.m. and is on air at 5 a.m. as part of ABC7’s morning newscast, now starting a half-hour earlier than before. The self-described “fitness fanatic” and sports enthusiast, who says her favorite beats are business and people profiles, has big plans for the show. “I want to make it new, fresh, more-up-to-date and interactive,” she explains. “A year from now, I want it to look completely different.”
