Erica Collura Leaving WKRC in Cincinnati After 9 Years

By Kevin Eck 

WKRC meteorologist Erica Collura is leaving the Cincinnati CBS affiliate on Oct. 27 after nine years at the station.

“It is with mixed emotions that I make this announcement,” Collura wrote on Facebook. “I appreciate each and every one of you for watching my weather broadcasts over the last nine years and some of you even longer than that since my Dayton days. I thank you for inviting me into your home every afternoon and evening.”

Collura joined WKRC in 2013 after working at WHIO in Dayton, Ohio.


Cincinnati media writer John Kieswetter wrote that Collura’s departure “means that all four Cincinnati TV stations will have added new meteorologists this year.”

WXIX-TV hired Ethan Embry to replace Olga Breese last winter. WLWT-TV added weekend meteorologist Adam Burniston in April to replace Cameron Hardin, who left in December.

Sherry Hughes left WCPO-TV last November creating the opening for meteorologist Brandon Spinner. Jeff Brogan, WCPO-TV vice president and general manager, said in August that the station plans to move weekend morning forecaster Raven Richard to traffic reporter after a new meteorologist is hired.
