Only ET has an exclusive first look at the series' all-new season, as Mary Jane's dreams of becoming a national lead anchor are dashed by Great Day USA's veteran anchor, Ronda Sales (Valarie Pettiford).
"I like you, Mary Jane, I do. That is why I'm going to be frank. Garrett (Ashton Holmes) has no intention of making you co-anchor," Ronda tells Mary Jane during a private meeting in her office.
"Excuse me?" a shocked Mary Jane asks.
"I know it probably seems that he is, given what transpired at Metagiates. It was Metagiates, wasn't it? Oh, of course it was," Ronda replies. "Garrett's favorite booth in the back, against the wall? A bottle of pinot, dessert? In fact, I fear the seduction started weeks ago when you were being interviewed, and undoubtedly he led you to believe that you were being groomed for my spot."
