Baltimore Station Names New Meteorologist

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Lynette Charles has been named chief meteorologist at WMAR, the ABC affiliate in Baltimore, Maryland.

Charles has been with the Baltimore news station since August 2010. She’s replacing Wyatt Everhart, who is staying with the station as host of “Midday Maryland,” a lifestyle show that’s launching this fall.

“Lynette is a strong and dependable meteorologist that just happens to also have an amazingly warm on-air personality,” said news director Kelly Groft. “The fact that our new chief is also a ‘Good Morning Maryland’ host is no accident. It drives home the point that mornings are becoming a key starting point for Marylanders each day.”

“I am most proud of helping the viewers stay safe in severe weather and going to schools to talk to the students about the weather,” said Charles.

Charles previously worked for The Weather Channel, WDEF in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and WPMT in York, Pennsylvania.
