Default Weather Channel personalities

I don't know if anyone has wondered where some of the Weather Channel personalities have ended up, but I have looked good and hard for some.

Eboni Deon, who was fired about the same time as Cheryl Lemke, is now with WFTV in Orlando. I liked her, so I'm glad she found a job!

Not that anyone cares, but I was thinking maybe we could use this thread to track down some of those former meteorologists. Heck, I may frequent it by myself just to see!

Bob Child is a meteorologist with News 14 in Charlotte. This is a 24-hour news channel which has a Weather on the Ones segment. He's still looking cute

Jeanetta Jones is a former meteorologist who went through a tragic car accident. I've read reports where she wasn't laid off--her injuries prevented her from returning to work. The article is below:

What a sad story.

According to wikipedia, Cheryl Lemke is on WXIA-TV in Atlanta, but I can't confirm the accuracy of that. Dave Schwartz was probably my favorite meterologist.

To think all these professionals were fired while they decided to keep that air head Stephanie Abrhams on the air. And Al Roker? What a joke.

I miss the low key presentation of TWC.

Yeah, it's terrible that she went through that accident and is suffering long-term effects. I wish the best for her.

The Weather Channel decided that sex sells, apparently, so they got rid of their talented meteorologists. It really is a shame. TWC will never be what it was.

Cheryl Lemke was my favorite meteorologist....she just seemed like someone I would love to meet in real life. Dave Schwartz was the man! He was up there as one of my favorites.

I read somewhere in this forum Dave Schwartz was on an Atlantian? news channel. He was my favorite too, my friend. I also remember a Jennifer Lopez, just because of the name.

Yes I remember Jennifer Lopez. She had the short brown hair.

Ah memories.

Betty Davis looks similar to Hilary from Fresh Prince
It's not a bad thing at all.
