Swails comes to the Cedar Rapids stations from WQAD in the Quad Cities. The Quad City Times reports viewers held a rally for Swails when he was let go from WQAD in June.

“Growing up in Iowa City, WMT/KGAN channel 2 was always the unquestioned news channel at our house,” Swails said in a statement. “I look forward to bringing my passion and knowledge for weather to the viewers of Eastern Iowa. It’s good to be back home.”
