Jeanes replaces Chuck George, who left the station earlier this year. During his time at KOLD, George took several leaves of absence related to his severe depression. He is currently pursuing an academic career, according to the station.
“I am very excited to join such a respected team of meteorologists at KOLD/KMSB,” Jeanes said in a statement. “Tucson is in one of the most beautiful parts of the country and I can’t wait to make the move.”
