By Kevin Eck 

WBNS chief meteorologist Ashlee Baracy is leaving the Columbus, Ohio CBS affiliate this week.

“With heavy hearts, we are announcing Chief Meteorologist Ashlee Baracy is leaving 10TV for an exciting new opportunity,” the station wrote on social media. “Her last day with 10TV will be on Thursday. We wish her all the best on her next adventure!”

“I feel like I have packed a lot in these seven years, and it’s been such a pleasure doing it all with the support of this community,” Baracy told The Columbus Dispatch. “The decision to move on from WBNS was not one I took lightly. However, the decision was deeply rooted in the future of my family, and I look forward to being able to share my next steps in the weeks to come.


Baracy was the station’s first female chief meteorologist. She joined the station in 2019.

John Cardenas, president and gm of WBNS told the Dispatch the station will announce a new chief meteorologist in the coming days.
