Tri-Cities-TN-VA meteorologist Rob Williams continues to recover from a crossbow attack in his home that took place late last month.
But at least he’s had some sense of normalcy as he returned to work June 11, per his Facebook fan page.
An Austin news director with Little Rock ties has left NBC affiliate KXAN after the station found itself in legal trouble earlier this month.
But it’s unclear whether or not Michael Fabac, who had also been ND at Little Rock’s KLRT, left voluntarily.
Two lawsuits filed against the station — one from a former weekend morning meteorologist — have sent shockwaves through the building.
It’s a “personnel matter.”
That’s what WFTS-TV general manager Rich Pegram called last week’s firing of morning meteorologist Stephanie Roberts.
After three years at WTVA-TV in the Tupelo-Columbus-West Point-Houston market, morning meteorologist Jennifer Watson will soon begin work as a meteorologist at WHNT-TV in Huntsville, Ala., according to an insider at the CBS affiliate.
Watson first began working at the Tupelo NBC affiliate in 2009 as a weekend meteorologist. The farewell article on WTVA’s website states she got bumped up to mornings a year later. But who will fill her shoes?
Brittany Bell, a fill-in meteorologist for WMC-TV in Memphis, Tenn., has been hired by ABC/CW affiliates KHBS/KHOG-TV as a meteorologist/reporter in the Fort Smith-Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers market.
Bell will anchor the station’s weathercasts on weekends and report during the week, according to a press release provided to Arkansas TV News.
Huntsville news personality Eric Sollman will soon be moving from Huntsville, Ala., to Tampa, Fla.
TVNewser reports the current general assignment reporter and 4 p.m. anchor for NBC affiliate WAFF will be joining the staff of cable news television station Bay News 9.
Sollman had been with WAFF since 2006.
Today, we continue the South TV News interview with former WHNT-TV chief meteorologist Dan Satterfield and his new job at WBOC-TV in Salisbury, Md., which begins next month.
Satterfield was gracious enough to let me ask him several questions about his new venture and his approach to meteorology after 32+ years in the field.
Part Two of our interview continues after the jump.
As many local news blogs (including us) reported earlier this month, former WHNT chief meteorologist Dan Satterfield will soon be starting at WBOC, a CBS affiliate in the Salisbury, Md., market.
Many of you had questions regarding Satterfield’s move and his departure from WHNT in December 2011.
A few days ago, I conducted an impromptu interview with the 32-year weather veteran to try and get some answers to these unknowns. This will be the first of two parts; the second will hit in the next few days.
Even though the appearance of guilt more than likely cost him his job, former Little Rock meteorologist Brett Cummins will not be charged in the September 2011 death of his friend, 24-year-old Dexter Williams.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports former KARK employee Cummins was found beside Williams in a hot tub on Labor Day. Investigators found traces of blood in the hot tub, but no water was present.
Here’s why Cummins wasn’t charged.
