Stephanie Edwards Accepts KTLA's Rose

Good news for Stephanie Edwards fans: According to the L.A. Times, the host will be back alongside Bob Eubanks on next year's coverage of the 2009 Tournament of Roses Parade.

Edwards, of course, was demoted in 2006 and replaced by "KTLA Morning News" anchor Michaela Pereira. The paper writes:

“The people at the station thought it was a great idea, and Stephanie thought it was a great idea,” said station spokesman Paul Nichols.

She will be reunited with co-host Bob Eubanks for the parade.

KTLA was heavily criticized in 2006 when the then-63-year-old Edwards was replaced in the broadcast booth by KTLA Morning News co-anchor Michaela Pereira, who was much younger. Edwards was confined to a sideline role interviewing crowd members.

The controversy increased when she was soaked by rain during the parade. Edwards has not appeared on the broadcast since 2006.
