Former CNN meteorologist Reynolds Wolf has been in the field for the Weather Channel the past couple days reporting on Isaac. This morning, before a liveshot from Miami, Weather Channel anchors re-introduced Wolf to the audience: “He’s reported from all kinds of natural disasters and hurricanes. He’s covered the gulf oil disaster. He’s worked for CNN, and in St. Louis, Orlando and Detroit as a local meteorologist.”

Wolf has been with CNN since 2006. and has specialized in reportage from dramatic weather events such as hurricanes, tornadoes and floods. He was one of CNN’s most prominent correspondents during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster in 2010.
Jeras has been with CNN since 1999, and also dedicated a significant amount of her time covering natural disasters. During Hurricane Katrina Jeras spent 84 hours on the air covering the hurricane and its aftermath.
It appears as though Wolf and Jeras are the only cuts in CNN’s weather unit, but we will update if we hear more.
