Chief Meteorologist Candice King Moves To Evenings At Eyewitness News
To answer the many emails I've received in the past few days: Don't worry! Candice King isn't going anywhere.
Except to later in the day.
It was officially announced today that Eyewitness News' Chief Meteorologist Candice King will move to an evening weather shift after more than five years working mornings and also delivering the forecasts for Riley & Scot on WROK.
Candice will be delivering the weathercasts on WTVO-17 at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 10 p.m. and on Fox-39 at 9 p.m. She'll also be working a Sunday-Thursday shift, in part because Sunday evening newscasts are among the most watched and also to better accommodate the needs of a growing family. Here's Candice:
"Thank you to everyone who has welcomed me into their homes every morning for the past five and a half years. Your comments and kind words have truly meant a lot to me, and I feel honored to have been able to bring you the forecast every morning. Even if it did involve sub-zero temperatures and snow."
"I look forward to this new adventure and working with Nick, Mimi. Christie and Scott. I hope you'll welcome me into your home during the evening, just as you did in the morning."
As you might have figured out, this opens a position in the morning for Eyewitness News. Meteorologist Kristin Cwynar, who has been filling in since Brandon's departure, will take over that job.
Starting Monday, April 27, Kristin also will have your morning and midday forecasts on WROK. Candice delivers your late afternoon and evening forecasts.
And Riley and I stay right where we are.
