Chief Meteorologist Rebecca Stevenson Out at KIRO

Meteorologist Rebecca Stevenson has parted ways with Seattle CBS affiliate KIRO.

Stevenson, who had been KIRO’s chief meteorologist since 2008, announced the news last week on Twitter. “Dry stretch now begins for Rebecca at Kiro7 too,” she tweeted along with a graphic showing Seattle’s recent record lack of rainfall. “I’ll be here on Twitter, but not at Kiro.”

Stevenson also announced the news on her Facebook page last week, writing, “Moving On! Not quite sure where yet but it’s going to be good.” In the wake of her exit, a Facebook group called “We want Rebecca Stevenson back as Chief Meteorologist on Seattle TV” has been formed.

KIRO has yet to respond to TVSpy’s requests for comment.
