Former CNN Meteorologist Reynolds Wolf Working for Weather Channel

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 and CNN meteorologist Jacqui Jeras both left CNN at the end of May. Jeras has since joined WJLA in Washington, DC.

The Afternoon Ticker: Banfield, Jeras, Linny Boyette

  • Ashleigh Banfield made her daytime debut on CNN today as the anchor of the network’s 11amET hour. Banfield, who makes the move from CNN’s “Early Start,” will anchor the newscast from New York.
  • “Today” superfan Linny Boyette was back at Studio 1A this morning on the show’s first day back from London. During the Olympics, Linny turned up at “GMA,” but it appears his allegiance to NBC remains intact now that the Games are done.

CNN Cuts Meteorologists Reynolds Wolf and Jacqui Jeras

Reynolds Wolf and Jacqui Jeras

CNN has parted ways with meteorologists Reynolds Wolf and Jacqui Jeras, TVNewser has learned.

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.

CNN still has Chad Myers and Rob Marciano in its weather unit, as well as meteorologists at CNN International and CNN en Espanol.

It appears as though Wolf and Jeras are the only cuts in CNN’s weather unit, but we will update if we hear more.
