KCPQ Announces Change in Weather

By Kevin Eck 

Seattle Fox-affiliate KCPQ is losing one crime reporter/weather anchor and naming a master gardener/meteorologist as her replacement.

News director Erica Hill told staffers in a memo obtained by TVSpy, former police officer and current weekend weather anchor Parella Lewis is leaving the station on Friday, April 22.

“I can’t think of anything more opposite than weather and crime fighting!” said Hill. “But Parella has done a great job in both roles during her time here at Q13. I know I speak for everyone when I say that she will be very missed.”

The station also announced that meteorologist Tim Joyce will join the weekend team starting Saturday, April 23. The certified master gardener will report during the week and anchor the Friday and Saturday evening shows.
