WIAT Meteorologist No Longer With Station, No Explanation Given

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel Comment

WIATā€™s chief meteorologist Mark Prater is gone without explanation, according to AL.com.

The paper is reporting that Prater is no longer with the station and neither him nor the news director will comment on the circumstances that led to his goodbye.

ā€œIā€™m thankful for the time I had at CBS 42, but now was the time to part ways,ā€ he told the paper

There is no word on an immediate replacement.

24 hours before his departure was announced, Prater was on the air and did a Facebook live about severe weather. His Facebook page has since been removed.
