By Aneya Fernando 

ron_smileyMorning meteorologist Ron Smiley is leaving Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN after five years at the station.

Smiley has accepted a new gig as morning and noon meteorologist at CBS O&O KDKA in Pittsburgh. Yesterday, Tim Williams, KDKA’s digital content manager tweeted the following:

Pittsburgh… Please welcome and follow who will be joining KDKA-TV as morning meteorologist very soon!


Smiley shared it with his followers, who were disappointed to  hear he was leaving the city. As he explained:

It’s a very tough decision but the best one for my family and me. I will be back often.

Smiley replaces veteran meteorologist Dennis Bowman, who retired in April.

Smiley begins his new position at KDKA in late June.
