WCBS-TV to Bring Accuweather.com’s Katie Fehlinger On Board as New Weather Person

FishbowlNY has learned that WCBS-TV/Channel 2 has hired Katie Fehlinger as a new weather forecaster. She has been with Accuweather, based in State College, Pennsylvania, as a host and producer, since 2006. Fehlinger, according to her LinkedIn page, will complete her certificate in Broadcast Meteorology this year at Mississippi State University.

A tipster tells FishbowlNY that Fehlinger is scheduled to join WCBS by the end of March.  

Fehlinger is a native of Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. After graduating from Cedar Crest College with Bachelors Degree in Communications, she started her career as a reporter for a newsmagazine in Bethelem, PA.  

A WCBS spokeswoman had no comment. However, while not a confirmation, a source tells FishbowlNY that Fehlinger was recently given a tour of the newsroom and studio by news director David Friend.  

In 2008, Asylum.com ranked Fehlinger as the 22nd among the Top 30 Sexiest Weather Girls.

It is unclear who, if anyone, would be leaving the station.
