Forecast is Sunny for WNYW Meteorlogist Shay Ryan, Heading to Tampa

Perhaps the heat wave wasn’t providing enough warmth for Shay Ryan. The WNYW/Channel 5 weekend meteorologist is on her way to a TV station in Tampa. FishbowlNY has been told Ryan starts the new gig immediately.

Ryan, who took over weekends in 2010, began at sister station WWOR/Channel 9 in 2008.

She spent eight years at WXYZ in Detroit. Ryan is married to former WNBC reporter Glenn Zimmerman.

There’s no mention of a replacement for Ryan, but one-time WNBC and WCBS meteorologist John Marshall is on the sidelines. He worked for many years under Channel 5 news director Dianne Doctor.

WNYW could not be reached for comment.
