Sharla is the new co-host of Newsmax’s Wake Up America. The show airs on weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., ET. She joins Rob Finnerty as the co-host.
Before her, it was television anchor Alison Maloni who hosted the show alongside Rob. Both Alison and Sharla are Emmy award-winning journalists. Moreover, Alison also run her own PR firm called Alison May Public Relations for the last 10 years.
Sharla being announced as the new Wake Up America host left fans questioning if Alison would be leaving the show and the media company Newsmax.

Alison announced that the Wake Up America team is expanding. She also said that she would be working on new segments for the show. She also announced she would be back on the show on Monday but kept the details of her new project under wraps.
