LA Meteorologist Trades TV For A Masters

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KABC meteorologist, Bri Winkler, is leaving TV to go back to school.

On her Instagram she announced her move and replacement, “I am leaving to pursue a masters in environmental science and next week will be my last on the morning show. I’ll be back to fill in, so it’s a “see you later” not a “goodbye”! Congratulations to @abc7leslielopez for taking the reigns, I know you’ll do great!”

Leslie Lopez is currently the weekend anchor at ABC-owned station.

Winker’s last day is next week. She will be back in a fill-in capacity.
