'Bachelorette' Ali Fedotowsky Gets a New TV Gig!

San Diego, get ready to wake up with Ali Fedotowsky! The Bachelorette star has found gainful new employment in the city as a broadcaster on the local news.

Fedotowsky took to her Twitter on Thursday night to make the official announcement. "Thrilled to be a part of the Fox 5 San Diego news team! My 1st segment is Monday morning. Love being involved with the community this way :)"

The 25-year-old, who notoriously left her job as an ad exec at Facebook to join the show (where she eventually became engaged to Roberto Martinez), informed followers that she'd be on in the 9 o'clock hour and that it will be the "1st of (hopefully) many segments!" 

Fedotowsky even exchanged tweets with a Fox 5 producer named Raha, who told the newcomer, "Welcome to the FOX 5 family @AliFedotowsky !!" She tweeted back with, "Thanks. I am so excited to be a part of the @fox5sandiego family :)" 

If you're a Fedotowsky fan and don't live in the San Diego region, don't fret! She assured via her Twitter that you "can watch online on their website :)" 

Of course, Fedotowsky is hardly the first reality star to make the transition to broadcasting. If you'll recall, Elisabeth Hasselbeck got her start on Survivor before becoming one of the ladies of The View.

A few Bachelor hopefuls also found life after the dating competition. Vienna Girardi may not have found everlasting love with Jake Pavelka, but she did do a brief stint as a guest reporter on Extra. Meanwhile, Melissa Rycroft has landed gigs on Dancing with the Stars, Entertainment Tonight and Good Morning America, and is currently helping Chris Harrison over at The Bachelor Pad.

Who knew The Bachelor and Bachelortte were such good resume builders?

Do you think Ali Fedotowsky will make for a good broadcaster? Chime in below!
