Atlanta stations have lost three chief meteorologists this year alone, and WGCL is one of them. After Markina Brown’s departure earlier this month, the CBS affiliate was once again on the lookout for a new weather anchor. Well, it looks like they’ve found Brown’s replacement.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution‘s Rodney Ho, Jim Kosek will replace Brown as chief meteorologist at the station. Kosek previously worked at Kansas City CBS affiliate KCTV for just five months. Prior to that, he was chief meteorologist at AccuWeather, where his wacky weather forecasts went viral.
WGCL news director Larry Perret announced the news in a memo to staff members yesterday.
Kosek’s first day is December 1.
