Embroiled in Legal Issues, WABC Appears Ready to End Ties With Weather Anchor Heidi Jones

Heidi Jones, the weekend weather anchor at WABC/Channel 7, has likely given her last forecast at the station.

You’ll recall Jones, 37, was arrested last month after allegedly falsifying a rape story to police.

Jones has been suspended indefinitely since the story first broke in December.

Fast forward to today. There is a job listing showing WABC is seeking a weekend morning weather anchor.  

A WABC spokesman had no comment, but FishbowlNY has learned that the station is looking to fill the position once held by Jones.

For now, though, Jones, with WABC since 2005, is still employed by Channel 7. Her bio and picture remain a part of the Eyewitness News team page.
