Champion will be on from 4-8pmET from The Weather Channel’s Atlanta studios. He will be joined for coverage of “Winter Storm Janus” by Jim Cantore and Kait Parker from Washington, D.C., Mike Seidel from Plymouth, Mass. and Stephanie Abrams from New York City. The network, which says it will devote round-the-clock coverage to the storm through Wednesday night, will also have a special edition of “Wake Up With Al” tomorrow at 5 a.m. Al Roker will report from Boston.
