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.

CNN Examining Gulf Clean-Up Efforts

marciano.rob072310.jpg Tonight CNN has a special documenting the Gulf clean-up efforts. “Rescue: Saving the Gulf” will be hosted by Rob Marciano and air at 8 p.m.

The special will look at how oil skimmers work, what needs to be done to decontaminate beaches and how to rescue animals that have been caught in the slick.

“The persistence of the people working to clean up the Gulf demonstrates their grit and strength,” says Marciano in a statement. “It’s a fight and a struggle every day – against the elements, against the oil, against sheer exhaustion. This is what it takes. Viewers will be inspired by their extraordinary determination to reclaim their way of life.”

‘GQ Brigade’ Deployed to the Gulf Coast

Daily Beast’s Rebecca Dana writes today about ABC News’ crew of male “talent” covering the oil spill in the gulf:

This summer, the network has sent a boy band’s assemblage of bright-eyed, sharp-tongued correspondents to the Gulf Coast, where they’ve broken news, landed big-get interviews and done it all in impossibly tight T-shirts. Other outlets fielded their own formidable crews to cover the oil spill, but only ABC fielded a lacrosse team.

Based on this TVNewser collage, that could be hard to argue:

Dana singles out David Muir, Matt Gutman, Jeffrey Kofman, Ryan Owens, Sam Champion and Chris Cuomo, but what about the men from other networks that got left out?

After the jump, see the other male correspondents and anchors rocking the smoldering GQ look.

As King described it on his show the other night, Ryan Seacrest will be “kind of co-hosting as well,” along with special celebrity guests including Justin Bieber, Cameron Diaz, Tim McGraw, Kathy Griffin, and Lenny Kravitz.

“The Gulf oil spill is a disaster both national and natural in scope, and the point of this effort is to get immediate relief to the people and Wildlife who are in urgent need,” says longtime CNN Larry King Live Senior Executive Producer Wendy Walker. “The telethon’s proceeds go directly to the relief organizations who are working on the frontlines to do just that.”

Just before 6:30amET, MSNBC broke away from a special edition of “Morning Joe” while David Shuster anchored breaking news coverage.

CNN stuck with “American Morning,” which was anchored by Rob Marciano and Carol Costello who were in for John Roberts and Kiran Chetry this morning. Jessica Yellin was reporting from the Capitol.

On the broadcast networks, the morning shows handled the vote within their top stories. Many of the usual anchors were out, including on “Good Morning America” where Bill Weir was in for George Stephanopoulos.

The last time the Senate held a roll call on Christmas eve was 1895.
