Bakersfield Station Hires ‘Crossover’ Meteorologist

By Kevin Eck 

Jesus Lopez has joined Bakersfield, Calif., ABC affiliate KERO as an evening meteorologist.

“My move to Bakersfield and my crossover to English has been nothing but amazing as I keep growing as a professional,” Lopez told Media Moves. “I’m thrilled to also keep informing the Hispanic community here in Bakersfield as I will also broadcast for Azteca TV.”

He comes from Spanish-language station KTUZ in Oklahoma City where he was the first certified Spanish speaking broadcast meteorologist in Oklahoma.
