WINK Meteorologist Goes Dark on Social After Refusing Big Pay Cut

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WINK meteorologist Scott Zedeker told his fans on Facebook that the station, WINK, made him an offer he had to refuse after 17 years.

Now, his Facebook page is gone.

“This is probably one of the saddest posts I have ever had to post. .. For the last 17 years almost to the date, I’m sad to say I will no longer be working at WINK News. So what I got from management, is what we call in the biz “an offer you can refuse” it consisted of a roughly 30% pay cut and a drastic shift change .. I couldn’t accept it. .. the reason for this was my research was low, not moving up … my rebuttal to them, I haven’t been promoted or even mentioned outside a newscast. (A few pictures here and there) let’s just say I had no help.”


Zedeker adds that after 17 years in the market, he’s not sure what’s next.

“I will be Mr Mom for awhile until I figure out what our next move will be. We are so blessed that Juliana’s business is doing so well. Shameless plug, Bare Roots Salon and Apothecary, (see link below) is open for making you feel beautiful again. Check it out!! All proceeds go to the Zedeker kids .. I say little prayers often for some guidance, because right now my emotions are all over,” he said.

WINK has removed Zedeker’s bio from the website already.
