Meteorologist John Marshall ‘Wasn’t Shocked’ by Losing Weekend Shifts at WCBS-TV

If you wake up early on the weekend, then you are probably aware of the John Marshall body of work. He had more than a dozen years under his belt at WNBC when they went in another direction last summer.

But as fate would have it, the timing worked perfectly for Marshall. In August, Megan Glaros left her weekend morning weather anchoring at WCBS-TV for Chicago. That same month, Marshall joined Channel 2 as a per diem employee.

Unlike at WNBC, Marshall, who grew up in New Jersey, was unable to get full-time status at WCBS. On Sunday, he did his final shift for the station.

WCBS-TV Weather Anchor Megan Glaros Joins Several Former Colleagues in Chicagoland

Megan Glaros gave her final forecast at WCBS/Channel 2 on August 15. She is off to Chicago at CBS owned and operated WBBM-TV as weathercaster for their new morning show.

Glaros, a former NFL cheerleader, previously lived in the Windy City.

Joining Glaros on the early morning newscast is her former WCBS weekend co-worker Steve Bartelstein.

He was tabbed as co-anchor of the revamped broadcast, starting August 30.

Last month, Kate Sullivan left her WCBS morning duties alongside Maurice DuBois. Sullivan, who started the exodus west to WBBM, was hired for the station’s evening newscasts.
