Roland Steadham will be joining Miami ABC affiliate WPLG on August 15.
Dave Boylan, WPLG vice president and general manager, told TVSpy, “We air nine hours of weekend morning news; 4.5 hours on both Saturday and Sunday. Plus our weekend morning news ratings are some of the highest ratings for any newscast during the week on any local station. That makes it an important role for a meteorologist at our station.”
Steadham last worked as chief meteorologist at Salt Lake City’s KTVX. Before working at KTVX, he was chief meteorologist at cross town rival KUTV. He’s no stranger to Miami, having worked at WSVN and WTVJ before leaving for Salt Lake City.
